it depends on the system that you are using. On my (former) weblog,  
it was not the case, because I didn't created the script to update  
the feeds when I modify my post on the web site.  So this  
relationship depends on the workflow, not on the state of things.

+1, weblog is one of the possible cases. Though keep the word blog in  
paranthesis with others if needed. It will help people to figure out  
practically.

yes and no. The whole thing about explicit data, let's say data, is  
that people do not edit structured information except if they
	- are constrained to do so (template, form)
	- have an immediate benefits to do so (searching, list, table of  
contents, etc.)
	- are metadata zealots (ivan, ben, karl, …)  ;)

I guess this is something that could be stressed out in an  
implementer guide.
	1. Do not request people to hand code things,
	2. Create immediate gratification for entering explicit data.
            (for example, visual benefits, search features, organized  
list, indexes, …)
