That could be done with Pingback, at least.
One advantage of doing pingbacks with pingomatic is that it could try
to remember just which sites do not have a pingback server, so as to
avoid pinging them. That could be done in WP itself, but think of the
resources saved "worldwide" if it was from a single location...
