Response to Tim
For some reason Sam's weblog is not accepting comments, so here is my response to Tim Appnel.
Tim, this is the tricky thing about formats and protocols, when to freeze them, and getting buy-in on the freeze. If you look at the history of RSS, and assume it predicts what Atom will go through, the answer is that Ben will have to pedal hard to keep up. If anything, because there are so many more cooks, it looks like the Atom experience will be even worse. But it's hard to predict what will happen.
BTW, they have to worry not only about current implementors but future ones too. When we tried to freeze RSS 0.91, there was no Movable Type, or even Blogger.
