 Can you point to the place where not having a user_id breaks deletion?
 Fixing that could be a short-term fix for the issue.

 As for the larger request, I think we should tackle it along with the
 migration to custom post types. My own view is that we should do away with
 the confusing item_id and secondary_item_id schema, and instead adopt a
 number of taxonomies or metadata standards: activity_group, activity_user,
 activity_blog_id, activity_forum_post_id, etc. That way you'd be able to
 use core taxonomy functions to get exactly the posts you want. And, by
 extension, you'd be able to change the markup on the way out, so that they
 appear however you want: "modemlooper posted an update" or "the group
 'modemlooper's posse' posted an update" or whatever, all from the same
 background data.

 Ideas on further implementation are welcome.
