MSN Spaces Implements RSS “Last Modified” Element

Seeing that MSN Spaces RSS feeds were having issues in Bloglines, looking like they were changing constantly due to dynamic elements, MSN Spaces introduced a new field to their feeds:

dcterms:modified

Any RSS reader can check that field to see when the last time an item was modified, and if it hasn’t changed, everything else is ignored. A good fix, but one I’d rather get handled by an industry-standard RSS field. Maybe it’ll happen eventually, and maybe this’ll be this. I just know I’ll be glad when I go into Bloglines and I don’t see every Spaces feed pretending to have 30 new items.
