True... I am just trying to get at the need to have some kind of clear
criteria for selection if choices like this are to be made in a
reasonable way. Otherwise it's just I want, I don't want. Of course,
if it DOES all come down to what Matt/Ryan want irregardless of
discussion here (I'm too new to the community to comment on that),
then it's all academic.

I do think that the discussion needs to go beyond aggregators and
human-initiated and controlled feed access, as I think you and Phil
are both trying to take it :)
