Good point.

There are no technical reasons that RSS couldn't be used to store  
archives or contain more than the latest entries, only social ones.  
Interestingly, using software such as Blosxom gives you this RSS  
archiving for free, e.g. http://mike.teczno.com/notes/2005/07/ 
index.rss vs. http://mike.teczno.com/notes/2005/07/. Do other  
blogging programs do this? My experience with MT or WP has been minimal.
