Atom Thread Feed syntax
I was reading the Atom Feed Thread draft  yesterday and I ran into a
problem as I described in my blog . To recap the 'in-reply-to'
element defined in that specification takes an 'id' attribute that
specifies /the universally unique identifier of the resource being
Calling such an attribute 'id' is a mistake in my opinion as it confuses
with the actual ID of the element itself within the XML document it
belongs to and it makes impossible for another element within the
document to have the same value as an 'id'. I would rather move the
content of that attribute as a text element of the 'in-reply-to' element
(as does the atom:id element).
