Seems to clearly be mission creep. That's always
a food fight.
Maybe all of those different applications should not
be RSS/Atom/blogging applications. Ambition outs
scope. Apparently *Feed Me* for some n of Me
is a big problem.
Another example of technology push vs customer pull.
From: Michael Champion [mailto:email@example.com]
...when lots of people start syndicating information that is mostly
processed by machines (calendars and schedules data that would be
pulled from a feed into Outlook, perhaps, or financial information that
might be acted on by some sort of 'bot), and as people want to move
away from liberal parsing towards content format contracts. The
"simplicity" of the RSS specs looks like underspecification to someone
who wants to be able to reject/ignore a message if it does not meet a
rigorous understanding of what information is there and how to find it.
