On the general issue of the scheduling rules, I am quite satisfied with
the current practice. Note that doesn't mean I'm always *happy* with it,
but it seems to be working.
I doubt that, in a volunteer community such as this, there is any system
that will keep everyone happy or will work perfectly all the time.

I agree with Becky. I think the ATOM format could be a request, but
certainly should not be a requirement.
And I agree with Ken. I would be quite willing to submit show notes in
Atom format, because I would view it as a chance to learn something about
XML. But that's because I enjoy this stuff.
I know that Ken and the other admins do a tremendous amount of work behind
the scenes; if I can take some of the load off, I'm happy to.
What I would like to see, if we are making that a request (rather than a
*requirement*), is a nice sample document prepared by someone who knows
XML that could be used as a template, showing title, text, images,
quotations, and any other field that might appear in typical show notes.
Then producing ATOM show notes could become a simple drag-and-replace
