The thing is that aggregating everything in one place reduces choice. I 
like planet as it is currently because what I get is well defined: 
personal blogs from people working on Debian.

It would also result in the different types of feeds getting mixed up in 
one category in the aggregator I use for reading planet and other rss 
services, while I'd prefer to have news items separate from personal 
blogs, possibly with a different expiration period.

Personally I don't want to receive DWN at all via rss: I prefer the mail 
subscription.

Of course I have no problem with creating separate categories on planet 
for other types of feeds. But please keep the original purpose of planet 
as a separate service and allow users choice.

Cheers,
FJP
