Links in RSS / Atom feeds

There has been a lot of discussion how to encode links to OGC W*S services in an easy way that does not require specifications to be extended.

Some links:

Blog: (Geo)RSS to search the GeoWeb

Possible ways to include links to OGC W*S services

Embed a minimum Web Map Context (OGC WMC)

Encode the link using a strategy also used in OpenSearch for instance, using so-called URI Templates

This would result in a link that would look like:

<link xmlns:xlink=”" type="simple" role="application/vnd.ogc.wms" href="{ogc:layer=admin1,admin2}" title="Admin boundaries of Africa"/>
