The thing I imagine is about the same as the other h* editors.
There's a single-page app somewhere that lets you compose a blog
entry, then copy and paste the (hAtom) source to our own blog.  The
benefit is that every blog tool in creation doesn't have to be
retrofitted with an hAtom editor.  You don't even have to have hAtom
CSS if you don't want it.

An example of the value of this --

My blog is a brutally barebones Blosxom setup.  I edit posts via Emacs
in a shell window, and I have found that copying and pasting from the
hReview, hCard and xfn editors is a route to get a GUI editor tool
into my workflow.

Cool.  Sounds good to me.
