It has a couple of disadvantages I can think of:

The release live-denting will be hard to do since updates via RSS
won't be realtime. Perhaps this can be mitigated with some CVS hooks

It is a push-only model, no interaction with people from the social
networks that we push to. We didn't really spend any time on this so
far so it isn't a regression. It would probably take a lot of effort
to keep up with all the comments on all the networks. I used to read
some of them a while ago but stopped while travelling.
