Hi Danny:

Doesn't that put WordPress in more or less the same category as MT (3.2)
which also dropped the RSS 1.0 template? In fact when we put up our
public-facing blogs at Nature using MT 3.2

	Action Potential - http://blogs.nature.com/nn/actionpotential/
	Free Association - http://blogs.nature.com/ng/freeassociation/
	Nascent          - http://blogs.nature.com/wp/nascent/

we had to lift the RSS 1.0 template from an older version. We are still very
much interested to get RDF transported over an Atom feed and would like to
engage with folks to get a standard means of accomplishing that.

Cheers,

Tony
