There are requirements to expose some specific attributes in the feed result.  These attributes are not specific to any entry i.e. global in scope. for example, it is possible that user may require additional attributes to be passed like "Configuration parameters used by the front end to present Activity entries"
Would like the RestfulCollection object to be backed by a map with the put and get methods exposed, similar to how ActivityEntry and ActivityObject are currently handled. 

The code in Shindig trunk does not pass extra items at the Stream level, only down at the Activity level. This JIRA seeks to migrate this patch back to Shindig such that other feed producers/renders can leverage it as well.

Example: 
{
  // Want to put custom attributes here and have them returned, 
  isAdmin: true,
  ....

  "items" : [
      {
        "published": "2011-02-10T15:04:55Z",
        "foo": "some extension property",
        "generator": {
