Hi Geof,

I see what you're saying. Ideally I'd like a way so that the ID in the 
atom feed is idenified in the markup; perhaps this is not easy or 
reasonable. I have some concerns about the "link", but they can probably 
be overcome ... I'll have to look at some Atom feeds in the wild and see 
how it's used.

Regards, etc...
