It doesn't really recommend anything at this point -- I'm just exploring 
all the possibilities and common data types I've seen in blog posts, 
news articles, BBs, etc..

I was working toward the minimal set idea, but reasonably this is going 
to include about 10 or so different things. One I've done 3, I'm not 
sure why I/we would stop at that when I can keep going and make the job 
complete and thorough with an incremental amount of work. (Such as 
creating the recommendation, convincing others of its merit, writing the 
profiles, and so on).

BTW: the concept of 'atom:content' is actually quite complicated when 
applied to blogs in the wild.

Also note that 'atom:*' are just placeholder names at this point, so I 
don't have to make up a vocabulary -- they're 'conceptual'

Regards, etc...
