I believe so. Depending on how you design the object schema you can
register notification requests with a Paos server to notify you of any
changes as well as any additions/removals. Notification requests have the
same power as regular queries. So all you need to do is to define the
catalog of objects that may change as a query and register it with Paos. 
Additions/removals are handled by formulating queries for changes in sets
of objects.

I'm currently in a paper deadline crunch - sorry - but I'm working on the
Paos documentation/tutorial "real soon now". :)
