RWW compares PubSubHubbub and Wave and indirectly references (new to me) Sowa's law:

"Whenever a major organization develops a new system as an official standard for X, the primary result is the widespread adoption of some simpler system as a de facto standard for X."

I'd say that may go too far, since PuSH achieves a tiny subset of Wave. But I wouldn't rule out delivering Operational Transforms through PuSH. The goal of our work has been composable, reusable infrastructure. That means people can and will use it for new use-cases we never considered. My favorite example of that is how Alexandre Passant combined SPARQL, RDF, and PubSubHubbub and won a prize from his peers!
