But what about everything else on the page -- from navigation to 
branding to any non-atom-like content? Or pages with multiple hatom 
feeds? Or the wide variety of "stuff" that could be entry content -- 
from images, photos or screenshots to lengthy articles -- that would 
presumably go un-specified in an hatom-garden type setting.

I guess I don't see how the others participating think the pages would 
be consumed, and the win I see from hAtom (the ability to subscribe to 
elements on any page of a site without shipping mulutple versions of a 
document) isn't at all related to the handheld space.
