Tim Bray on 1-click Subscription

Tim Bray: But if the reward was one-click subscription, maybe we could get the world’s server operators to goose their config files and start serving RSS as application/rss+xml instead of text/xml.

Randy: Great idea. How do we make this happen?

Does Tim realize that Atom is almost always served with the incorrect Content-Type? Blogger serves their Atom as application/xml, not application/atom+xml. LiveJournal serves their Atom as text/xml. That's the vast majority (80%+) of existing Atom feeds.
