Well, sure. I was responding to comments that this work was "already
done." Think of this exercise as a model for the resources the server
must make available. There's more than just Atom format stuff there. For
example, there's the a lot of functionality that would typically go in
an admin screen in MT, Wordpress, etc. Adding/Removing users, adding
categories, stuff like that. Make sense?
I'm also a little puzzled by, e.g. Post Page: "A formatted display of
a single entry.". - the model part is the Entry, surely the
presentation should be dealt with separately?
The HTML representations are objects the model could take into account.

Could we use MIME? Vendors could register their template languages under

Lost me. Could you please explain how the syntax of templates relates
to the data model.
The protocol must provide capabilities for modification of templates
(see charter). One of the properties of a template is its
syntax/language. One way of identifying the "language" of a template is
to give it a MIME type.
