Upload the new Inventory feeds several times per day
I want to use the new Inventory feeds, but I'd like to upload via FTP more than once per day, because my inventory (and sometimes pricing) may change a few times per day.
The spec says that I can only upload once per day. Automatic fetch also works up to once per day.
Is it ok to use FTP to upload inventory every hour? Has anyone tried that?

generally, google recommends only four re-uploads per day --
if items cannot be kept up-to-date with four re-uploads per
day then, either the api or rich-snippets or both must be used.
if items still cannot be kept up-to-date then such items simply cannot
be submitted, without risking disapproval or (permanent) suspension,
at any time -- for example, in the case of auction items.
of course, there is no technical block from submitting data
(via ftp) more often than the recommendation; typically,
this may cause all items to always be in the middle of a
state-change -- among other side-effects.
