Is anyone else as frustrated about RSS as John Maeda?

In his blog article "RSS Isn't Simple" he says that he
tried to write his own output program, but it's not
clear which specification is the "master" format.


Maeda said he tried three online verification systems
and got three different diagnoses.

He wonders if this is an example of over-engineering
to the point of non-utility, like the Titanic, where
design aesthetics ruled out sufficient lifeboats.
