Standardizing Blog Tools

Brent suggests that blog tools standardize features.

Wouldn’t it be cool if weblog systems supported a standard set of attributes? Forget the API for a moment (though that’s important too)—I’m talking about the features different systems support. The problem with that idea is that systems compete (in part) based on those features. Does system x support trackbacks? Does system y support keywords?

Stay tuned for back-channel complaining as programmers fight over who is the standard and who gets to ‘own’ it.
