The plan is to get around the complexity of RSS 1.0 by using XML name spaces?
RSS 3.0 with it's even simpler syntax is available too. I still like absmyl if only for the way he describes XML.
I had this really good piece on how adding XML Schema was a bad thing to do to RSS and it turned out to be name spaces (or namespaces). The worse thing is that I not only wasted my time but other peoples (if they read it). If there was some way you could tax or inflict pain on people who waste your time it would get rid of dumb user interfaces, spam, bureaucracy, boring blogs etc. Unlike email, blogging allows you to update your stories with updates, fix formatting, spelling and grammar later. Or remove any mention of political enemies - Stalin style.
