I just had a thought about the example of yours that Tantek posted.  In 
Atom, the ID of an entry is not a link:  "Though the IRI might use a 
dereferencable scheme, Atom Processors MUST NOT assume it can be 
dereferenced" [1].  So we would probably want a way to specify the link 
as well.  (Which raises the question of the various rel values for the 
Atom link element, and the possibility of references to the feed itself.)

Here's your example again (somewhat abbreviated):
