RSS 1.0 Specification Proposal

RSS ("RDF Site Summary") is a lightweight multipurpose
extensible metadata description and syndication format.  RSS is
an XML application, conforms to the W3C's RDF Specification
and is extensible via XML-namespace and/or RDF based modularization.

Design Goals
The modular extension of existing RSS through XML Namespaces and RDF
stressing backward compatibility with RSS 0.9 for ease of adoption
by existing syndicated content producers.
