One option that I see: the filter subscription should include a comment pointing to the address of the contact script. Adblock Plus will then load that address with some parameters (parameter names have to be fixed, same parameter names will be used for all filter subscriptions).

Then we don't need to notify authors of all his subscriptions, it's enough to notify the ones who have filters matching on the page.
