Re: Atom and accessibility - Atom vs RSS

What a11y features does Atom have that RSS doesn't?
Personally, I prefer Atom because I find it to be more context free than
RSS. Even though Atom rose from blogging requirements the format was
cleverly defined so that those requirements don't prevent it to be used
elsewhere. Sure it's XML and you can stuff anything you want in any
format you like. But it feels less clumsy and more natural with Atom
than RSS whenever you're not in a blog context. Aristotle mentioned the
seperation between atom:summary and atom:content as one key of the power
of Atom, to me atom:link and atom:category elements are even more
interesting considering how simple yet powerful they are.
Overall I find Atom to dictate less the way I want things to be
represented than with RSS. Could be a matter of taste but Atom feels
more neutral and therefore easier to adapt.
