I missed this excellent framework for the way to think about publishing in RSS/syndication formats on the Web. It avoids the political and personal issues, and looks at the purpose and yield. I agree completely with the recommendations. I'm partly blogging this so that I can later find the other entry more easily to refer people to when the political issues come up.If you're involved in creating standards, this page may irritate you because it chops away at most of the reasons for having a syndication format more advanced than 0.91. But if you're interested in publishing and subscribing, this piece makes a great deal of sense for planning how to deploy and what to support. No format is denigrated; they're all put in context.
