RSS and Atom together?

The father of RSS has proposed that RSS and Atom combine into a single format controlled by IETF. RSS and Atom feeds provide a way for websites to syndicate content from other websites, as well as allowing tons of other uses (RSS readers, stock tickers, ect. ect.). Atom (formerly Echo and a whole bunch of other names) was originally created due to many peoples feeling that RSS's creator was too controlling.

Sam Ruby, creator of Atom, said "As long as it's under the IETF, it's fine," said Ruby. "The IETF has a good history of dealing with personality disputes of all types, and I imagine we'll work through them.".
