But I can't use that RSS archive for anything. I can't read it (or I'll  
have to add it to a subscription list to read it just once). I can't link  
to it. For it to be usable as an archive format RSS readers will have to  
reinvent every aspect of the webbrowser - with an added RSS wrapper.  
That's more tha a little silly.
