Editorial about new Syndication Formats

Dave Winer: Recently a couple of earnest and probably well-intentioned developers proposed another format called RSS that's incompatible with all others. This is a bad idea. We should be going the other way, trying evolve incompatible formats into a unified format.

Randy: Amen! And why don't a bunch of RSS developers get together and start deprecating versions. RSS 0.90, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94 should be deprecated to start. In fact, I'm unofficially deprecating them, right now! They never happened. We only have five versions now, 0.91, 1.0, 2.0 and Atom 0.3 and Atom 0.4 ;)

Oops, fogot 1.1?
