PaceOptionalFeedLink


Abstract

Remove the requirement for a feed-level link element.

Status

Open

Rationale

The requirement makes people jump through hoops for little gain, since there is a strong incentive to provide the link if you have something. Unlike entries, feeds are almost always dereferenced from a URI.

Proposal

In section 4.1.1, strike the line that reads

"atom:feed elements MUST contain at least one atom:link element with a relation of "alternate"."
