Slightly OT, but I wonder if RATE might be a useful feature to allow for all 
PUB sockets (and maybe just all sockets), rather than restricted to pgm only.

It seems to me that you want to use RATE when you need to slow down sending 
but can't depend on receiver feedback. This is a problem at the pattern level, 
not the transport level.
