Give Poor Aggregators Less

John Wilson: This lead to me thinking, why not do something similar with poorly written RSS aggregators? If RSS aggregators do not give a If-None-Match or a If-Modified-Since header, why not penalize them with an excerpt version of the feed? Well behaved aggregators get the full feed.

Randy: Creative, but I don't like the drawback.
