We're halfway to RSS replies (in reply to inReplyTo)

This past weekend I posted to this blog the idea of an inReplyTo RSS element to enable all kinds of cool features in feed readers and to civilize discourse on the Web.

Now I realize we're halfway there.

For many, if not most, RSS items, you can figure out what other items are being replied to simply by looking at the links within the body of the item ("description" in RSS or "content" in Atom). Whatever URLs are linked to are what the item is "reply"ing to.
