RE: Great piece on RSS

RE:  Great piece on RSS
They are both self-assertion (the registration 
information and the vendor web page).  I see 
your point, but more and more, I see the issue 
as ranking and gaming a ranked position.  Sure, 
you can sell yourself as a space tourism business, 
but if you sell me that and sign the contract, 
you better bankrupt before we get to court.  On 
the other hand, if a group gets together and 
starts hyperlinking to your web page based 
on their perception that you are in the space 
tourism business, and Google sends me to your 
page, if you haven't asserted anything to that 
effect, Google is wrong.  No fault IMO, but 
I will try to avoid Google if it lies.  Your 
registering as such is a different issue.

In short, given multple references, I will 
initially trust your self assertions based 
on the document type you assert and the 
contents of the document of that type.  If you lie, 
I sue.  If you deliver, I pay.  It doesn't 
matter if I discover you based on Google or 
UDDI.  It does matter how I integrate.
