I wonder why there is no such rss-to-activitypub gateway that would convert pull-based RSS/Atom feeds into push-based Activity streams, i.e. that will check all subscribed feeds for changes and publish new items to the Fediverse. Is a lack of such gateway caused by fear of polluting Fediverse with tons of anonymously generated rss links?

Hint: in case when a feed item lacks an id, it makes sense to generate a new id from the checksum of content.
