        • [+] Other tools use it   Radioland and numerous other utilities readily create and consume OPML files.
        • [-] It's missing descriptions as a standard data element   For example, it'd be nice to be able to create outlines of blog entries. Not nicely crowbarred into OPML.

        • [+] Very powerful for declaring relationships between items   And rather chic these days.
        • [-] Difficult to extract information from   Developing a script to render a topic map on a web page requires a small development staff. Too complicated.

        • [+] Widespread adoption  
        • [-] No accepted hierarchical data structures  
      • 6 Create something new (2) My leading proposal is for a hierarchical RSS. Many of the same fields, plus a few more to support outline rendering (eg. expansion state).
        • [+] Aim to create something fresh and useful, yet familiar and accessible  
        • [+] Merge RSS and OPML?
