Core Requirements

This section briefly summarizes the requirements for the syndication data format. Most of these requirements are based on our pre-formed assumptions: that the we will use XML to encode the message, and that the data encoded in the syndication message (independent of the content) will be sufficient to support the use cases described in the use case document.

Requirements of the Syndicated Message Format

This section describes technical requirements of the syndicated message format -- the types of data the format must be able to encode, and how it must expose information to the user of the document. These are pretty rough (and not terribly well written) but should give a pretty fair idea of the intention.
