I consider it to be a bit orthogonal, but we have a bug open for that 
too. It's slightly less trivial than it sounds since we need a way for 
the publisher to indicate that it's happy to have its identity revealed 
- at the moment we're leaning towards having the publisher assert its 
identity and have the broker enforce the truth of that.
