The Atom Publishing Protocol

A new version of the Atom publishing protocol. It's changed. Alot :(

In your view, does RSS still stand for a specific syndication format, or do you now consider RSS to be an umbrella for all syndication formats (or "publishing protocols") that *includes* the Atom format as well as .XML and .RDF?

So, for my blogs on Google's Blogger that are in Atom format, would you in fact say that they *are* in RSS format?

As far as I can tell, common usage is now for RSS to be any format that a blog aggregator (such as Bloglines or NewsGator) can accept.
