Thanks to Dave Winer

Aside from everything else, I would like to thank "Dave" for handing over stewardship of RSS 2.0 spec to Berkman Center and making it available under Creative Commons license.  Well, done.  I wish W3C and OASIS would do the same so people can create subset specs without getting on their knees.

Regarding the comment about "an emperor with no clothes", I prefer the "empress with no clothes" version of the story.
