W3C wants Atom

Looks like the W3C wants the Atom community to work through them.

I’m undecided whether or not I’m for this. On the one hand, the W3C certainly has the tools to promote and document Atom. On the other hand, adding Atom to their semantic web effort could make Atom even more complex – and simplicity is what makes RSS so great, despite its imprecise specification (via Scoble).
