Support for Paged Feeds as specified in RFC 5005

Hi there,
I would like to ask if and when you would consider to implement 'Paged Feeds' as described in RFC 5005?
RFC: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5005
Reasoning: http://podlove.org/paged-feeds/

Thanks!

Looks like that is something

Looks like that is something that needs to be supported by the publishers first right?

Well, I wouldn't see it like that ...

The publisher could say: whats the point in supporting that, if most software does not implement it. (as far as I know, only Instacast on iOS does but I don't know any client for Android which does)?
The software-vendor could say: whats the point in implementing it when there is no publisher supporting it?
This would end up in a catch 22 and nothing happens. At some stage its a good idea to go ahead and do what makes sense and provides benefits.

My perspective is a podcast-listener who would like to have an archive for his favourite podcast which only supports an archive via Paged Feeds.
The advantage is clear to me: reduced network traffic for everyone.

Makes sense.

Makes sense.
Are you aware of any publishers that do this now?
