That is good news. One XML transformation less for me.

But my point was different, as win7's federated search goes (or any other service looking for a feed), it expects to read that feed from a web source. It would also make sense for the content server to provide a feed for numerous advantages-
  • Integration into Win7's Federated search is just one.
  • It would provide so many possibilities like attaching one's library to facebook, friend-feed etc. I would love seeing my friends just read/updates/newly added books on social networks
  • provide publishers a means to syndicate books/excerpts/ chapters/samples
  • showing latest read books in forum sigs
etc etc etc I hope you see what I mean. feeds are sort of a basic mechanize to integrate the library with anything on the web. The more i think about this the more i like this idea.

The more i think about it
