May 03, 2006 : Idea: feed feeds?

It would be nice to have feeds of feeds. Two good examples: a comment feed branching off of each item in a blog feed. Or a feed of your assigned issues/bugs with a feed of status changes branching off of each issue. (let's not start thinking about "threaded" feeds)

I'm not too familiar with OPML, but you could probably have a dynamic OPML of all the comment feeds of a blog. But you'd need a feedreader that would watch for changes to the OPML file. I'm not too familiar with OPML, but I don't think there's any way for it to changes over time well, like an rss/atom feed. Moreover, with OPML you wouldn't have a direct relationship between an item in the parent feed and the item's own child feed.

Is this possible at all, or would it require the next generation of specs & clients?
