Clarifying: your software (at time of publication), or the consumer's 
software?

In the first case: nobody's stopping you from doing it already. It 
doesn't need standardization.

In the second case: do you expect consumers (such as feed readers) to 
start accepting this format in addition to Atom and maybe the many 
things called "RSS"? In which case we would change the target audience 
of the spec to include a whole new set of clients.
