RSS 3.0 looks great. Love the focus on plain text and keeping it simple.
Compared to the new Feed.txt  the "old" RSS 3.0 might too simple
e.g. the rule about indenting your content in multi-line values look
like not practical that easy will break things.
Feed.txt has proper dividers for blocks and content but otherwise
keeps the simplicity that looks like a joke ;-)
|>>> starts a feed
</> divides a content block
---- ends a meta data block
<<<| ends a feed
That's it. To use multi-line content just "paste" it into your
feed. No encoding or indendation rules. Keep it simple. Maybe rebrand
it as RSS 5.0 or something ;-) Cheers.
