Here's an example of a hook that aborts under certain conditions:

(defun jidanni-message-confirm ()
 "Confirm that we really want to send the message."
 (or (y-or-n-p "Send?")

(add-hook 'message-send-hook 'jidanni-message-confirm)
;; you may need message-send--news-hook as well

To get the Subject header, you can do

  (message-fetch-field "Subject"))

I am sure integrating this with posting styles won't be too hard either.
