On the plus side, it does appear as if the sitemaps feature is able to digest Atom feeds in addition to it's own format.

Read through the Sitemap FAQ (https://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/docs/en/faq.html) and you'll see that there is already a way to ping Google (https://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/docs/en/faq.html#s4) to let them know about your sitemap file. Although this is under the section of submitting your sitemap file, I suspect that it will also be expanded to provided updates.

As for being compatible with ATOM, yeah that would be a plus I suppose. It doesn't really bother much since the format is pretty simply. I realize from your perspective though that means more work for PubSub in supporting yet another format.

It would be nice if I could actually use links in your comments instead of putting them in as text. Make it hard to put a dent in your LINKCount if I can't put in any useful links :-)

So why didn't Google just re-use Atom? It wasn't a perfect fit? I guess when one format isn't a perfect fit, that justifies creating a new one. I mean, that's why Atom exists in the first place. Right?
