Interesting protocol looks very similar to pingback

webmention <http://webmention.org/>

Essentially use the header:

Link: <http://bobs.host/webmention-endpoint>; rel="http://webmention.org/"

Followed by:

POST /webmention-endpoint HTTP/1.1Host: bobs.hostContent-Type:
application/x-www-url-form-encoded

source=http://alices.host/alice/post/42&
target=http://bobs.host/bob/post/2


Some buzz in various corners of the web:

Sandeep, could source, target also be used with a message body?
