RSS in XHTML

On the Syndication list, Doug Ransom proposed a way of embedding RSS into XHTML:

<html>
  <head>
    <rss:channel xmlns="a new namespace">
          whatever elements you need</rss:channel>
  </head>
  <body>
    <rss:item>
      <h2><rss:title>My Item</rss:title></h2>
      <p>Date:<rss:date>2003-20-01</rss:date>
        <rss:description>Today we went fishing</rss:description>
        down at the wharf. 100 more lines blah blah.</p>
    </rss:item>
  </body>
</html>

I think this is a fantastic idea. XHTML being used as a framework - exactly what it was designed for. Getting authoring tool support should be fairly easy too.
