that sounds nice but I guess there is no programming skill around here 
to do that magic. I was more thinking about a template that is loaded 
first and you fill in the text into the placeholders.

when the webservices are receiving content from a cellphone, blogger API 
or whatever else, they automatically select the "webservices" template 
and fill the text into it.
this ensures that the permissions are correct and the layout is also done.
