The microformats wiki says:


        an Entry Permalink element represents the concept of an Atom
        link in an entry

which links in turn to:


        (aka <http://tinyurl.com/q9d34>)

        The "atom:link" element defines a reference from an entry or
        feed to a Web resource. This specification assigns no meaning to
        the content (if any) of this element.

If you were right, then hAtom would be of no use for the purpose I
outlines; and we'd still need a "What's New" microformat.
