This document is an important improvement on RFC4287, adding the ability
to download only part of a published Atom feed at a time. Many servers
already provide only part of a feed (e.g. a blog with hundreds of archived
entries) when clients request the feed itself, and the information about
how to get the rest of the feed is *simply not there* with existing
standards (or if there, human-readable only).
Working Group Summary
Although this is not a WG document, it was reviewed by the members of the
AtomPub WG. There was no significant dissent, and there was definitely
support for implementing it. It's already implemented in Apache Abdera
Lisa Dusseault reviewed for the IESG.
