It would also be nice if they supported hAtom for individual photo "posts".

They do of course support geo-tags and rel-tags; I I owe them some
code for XFN support (which anyone can write -- if you're feeling
inspired -- just delve into Flickr's HTML and add the appropriate rel
values and we can diff it).

Did you have a particular use case in mind?
