Tim Bray: The world can use Atom, sooner rather than later. The return-on-investment of further WG time invested in polishing something that's already pretty good is starting to be very unattractive.

Dare Obansanjo: So far Atom is a less featureful version of RSS 2.0.As it stands now given the current cost/benefit of Atom over RSS 2.0, the current Atom draft + categories isn't something I'd advise anyone at my employer's to use if it became an RFC nor is it something I believe we'd use on the stuff I work on directly ( for one).

Randy: Both Dare and Tim are correct. The Atom format on itself is of little use over RSS 2.0, since it's effectively a 1-to-1 rewrite of RSS 1.0. On the other hand, Atom is really getting stale. W/out action, it's dead!
