Atom better podcasting than RSS

Dave Johnson: Podcasting originated as a feature of RSS, but as the world moves to the new standard Atom format, podcasters will too. Atom can support podcasting through the <link> element. As is the case with RSS 2.0 based podcasts, you can only have one podcast per entry. But, with Atom you can have a different representation for each language and for each content-type.

Randy: Take any XML vocabulary. You can always find some feature unsupported. Then you create a new XML vocabulary that meets this requirement. Then you say it has better support. Unfortunately, supporting one feature that very few have suggested is a requirement, doesn't equate to better support. MHO.
