Why Use RSS?

WebReview have a couple of new features about RSS. The first, Why Would You Use RSS?, suggests some uses for RSS, although this paragraph puzzles me:

It should come as no surprise, then, that Userland and O’Reilly are very interested in the future of RSS and syndication, and that we’re working together with the community of developers that has grown around RSS to build on this technology. Netscape is still the de-facto maintainer of the specification, but many developers would like to move RSS beyond its current applications.
Makes me wonder who really wrote the article. The more interesting of the two is RSS Delivers the XML Promise which describes the parts of an RSS channel and how to write them.
