[whatwg] Removing the need for separate feeds

I also wonder if feeds being accessible in HTML might give rise, as with 
stylesheets and scripts contained in the head (convenient as those can 
be too), to excessive bandwidth, as agents repeatedly request updates to 
a whole HTML page containing a lot of other data.

(If we had external entities working though, that might be different for 
XHTML at least, as the file could be included easily as well as reside 
in its own independently discoverable location (via <link/>)...)
