Yes, yes and yes
We have plans to allow indexing of linked-to articles, even if the content is not in the feed (Awasu can already pull down the content to allow for reading offline).

I'm not sure exactly how Technorati or Google work. When they are pinged, I suspect they go and retrieve the feed itself. Whether or not they also index linked-to content at that time or do it later, I'm not sure.

Depends how technical you are. It would be possible to write a channel hook that gets invoked every time Awasu receives new feed items. The hook could then follow the links and index it elsewhere, for example.
