There's no technical reasons, except:

(1) now people have to change their software to generate RSS archives
(2) a pointer spec has to be made to go from the HTML archive to the 
corresponding RSS archive
(3) RSS is primarily a transport layer and incidently a metadata 
container; the primary joy of webpages is in the HTML part -- why move 
the metadata elsewhere

Regards, etc...
