RSS can be used to distribute all sorts of information
It's almost like people inventing new 'standards' are deliberately trying to make them hard so they can be the de facto gatekeepers of the new tech — all while decrying the web's current gatekeepers. If something is too hard for the average person to implement then they are forced to use an existing solution, often that created by those who designed the standard.
RSS may not be the answer to a lot of things, at least not in its basic form, but so much more could be achieved with a bit of lateral thinking and clever use of namespaces.
