I believe this is implimented in XSLT. Many of the posts in 
the archive are pretty lengthy, contain nested quoting etc. 
And some have attachments linked from the main post. I'm not sure
the raw contents would be a great thing to include within the RSS 
feed. And there could be server-load considerations too, thinking
about it. But yes, ultimately I would love to see better message 
summaries integrated into a lists.w3.org RSS service. I think 
it'd involve someone doing some coding though... Perhaps a 
rough algorithm to begin with might be: excerpt the first 10 
lines that don't begin with a '>' character?

ps. I just asked my colleagues about possibility of adding 
RSS autodiscovery <link/> tags.
