CNET recently introduced a new variant of RSS, dubbed
"Hot RSS". (more info here:
http://diveintomark.org/archives/2004/04/14/hot-rss )
The Feed Validator does not recognize this variant of
RSS; it claims all Hot RSS feeds are invalid with an
unrecognized root element. (example:
http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdiveintomark.org%2Fpublic%2F2004%2F04%2Fdlhtf-download.com.com.xml
)

    Hot RSS doesn't appear to be an uncontroversial, ratified,
    final and unambiguously documented standard.

    With that in mind, should the validator support it?
