Ok, FWIW, here's the already open issues I think we need to deal with  
for hAtom 0.2. Even if this is all we do, I think it'd be a great  

1. http://microformats.org/wiki/hatom-issues#Feed_id_.28atom:id.29
2. http://microformats.org/wiki/hatom-issues#Feed_permalink_. 
3. http://microformats.org/wiki/hatom-issues#Feed_updated_. 
4. http://microformats.org/wiki/hatom-issues#Entry_id_.28atom:id.29

All of these issues cover areas where hAtom is not expressive enough  
to provide all the information necessary to generate a valid Atom  
file. Robert Bachmann, et al, worked around these issues by adding  
extensions to html2Atom.xsl. I've implemented some of extensions  
myself and they seem to work pretty naturally (even without authors  
even knowing about them!).

David, if you like, I can find some more test cases and/or examples  
for each of these.
