Could you tell me more about how you are using event notifications?

We use event notifications for the sake of audit trails, in that client 
applications do not currently "consume" the event notifications nor 
their payload, so what URI is being used in the notification payload is 
preferably (for us) a consistent URI (i.e. the one from a "global", not 
domain-specific administrator).
