It does beg the question, though (and I'm just trying to be a straight man here), "Why aren't Atom + existing extensions good enough?" (using http://wellformedweb.org/CommentAPI/commentRss or even Dublin Core as an example)
(Nice Catch Kent!)
So yeah... Kind of left off some important pieces as to why It *IS* broken. Of course, in a follow-up comment I pointed Kent at the original post and suggested blocking out a solid 10 minutes to read all of the follow-up comments, thinking incorrectly that this, in and of itself, was a justifiable thing to do.
What I needed to do was sum things up into a couple short bullet points, or at worst, two or three sentences. But instead of correcting my mistake by creating the above, I am insted going to:
You said: "nothing to do with the fact that it has been ratified and standardized by IETF and recommended by the W3C"

Am I incorrect in this? Obviously you would no *A LOT* better than I would, but I was (before now) certain that this was the case, especially given its W3C-based namespace (http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom)
