I’d like to suggest a few optional additions to the specification. Here are some ideas I’d like to throw around for discussion:
: This would allow us to specify a particular date for an item. I think it would be nice for those of us who have several days’ worth of content in their RDF channel.
These could be encapsulated in to an section that would include all links to outside of the channel.
: Much like points to the page the channel is for could point to a page of information about this channel. this could link to a FAQ or more information about the channel.
: Points to a page where wireless devices can go.
: Points to a page where broadband devices can go.
: Points to a page where narrowband devices (browsers for blind people, text-only browsers, etc..) can go.
: Points to a P3P page to check the privacy rules.
: Points to either a VXML source file (which can be read by a VXML browser) or a sound file. For example, it could serve up a radio feed related to this story.
: Same as above with video or SMIL file.
That said, here’s what a source could look like (changes are bold and URLs are fictional (but I cut and pasted my .91 channel content for speed reasons)):
NewDocTypeLinkGoesHere > 92 "> [email protected] Copyright 1999-present, Me. My channel description>/description> en-us http://www.tnl.net/images/TNLpalmlogo.gif 125 44 My channel description

As part of the deal, I’d also move the original channel link and image link into the external field under a single link header (unless some people can tell me where they have a different link for the image and the channel.
