Ok, but since you are relying on it, it's actually a feature that is 
used. Should it be part of our contract? Why not?

Since you are using it, I won't remove the possibility of having the 
link on the page, as that skinconf section shows the other possible 
output formats. I will instead write a small description of what it may 
be used for.

You also talked about syndicating content... which makes mne think that 
in the future having an RSS feed that tracks the changes to a page or to 
the site would be cool, but let's keep it for later.
