The original proposal for rel=alternate for RSS feeds was all about home pages
(and other landing pages that might reasonably have their own "alternate"
forms, like a page that had full or partial content from all the blog posts in
a specific category and linked to a category-specific feed that mirrored that
landing page in a specific feed format).

The RFC I wrote for rel=alternate for Atom feeds (long since expired) was all
about home pages and other landing pages. It intentionally did NOT mention the
case of individual blog post pointing to a "main" feed for the site that might
not even contain the blog post in question (if it was too old and/or the feed
was too short).

In the meantime, the world decided to put rel=alternate links on every single
fracking web page, ever. I don't particularly care how you phrase it, but the
HTML5 spec needs to acknowledge this fact. It will be the first attempt to ever
do so. Good luck with that.
