      Yes. One divergence here is that individual items from a feed could well be
      reaggregated from their source into another feed. If just manually, but perhaps
      as a result of search engine queries. Having real per-item meta data will help
      it bring along valuable context.

      Right but a table of contents has page and/or chapter numbers. The chapters
      themselves contain their number and likewise the pages. Thus items, if they
      want to follow the book/toc analogy, would benefit from having their own
      metadata.

      Seems to.
