I don't think that's what I mean. I mean the XML entity called "channel link" (which refers, in theory, to the HTML page directly related to the feed's content, probably that presenting it at the source site) at the source RSS file. The RSS file for my reviews, for example, is and the channel link entity just points at , whereas I think that it should point at .

(Mark and I discussed this on IRC, and I'm pretty sure he's clear on the point and agrees with me conceptually, but it's hardly a high priority. I was just trying to decide whether I should mangle the channel link output when constructing the current state of or just leave it alone since you all would get around to adding the better specification of channel link later on, which would then make my mangled URLs into invalid ones.)
