It turns out that more than 50% of requests for data from the del.icio.us site are from RSS, not humans. Because of this the folks at del.icio.us are working to improve what gets delivered via their RSS feeds such as “offering the ability to save bookmarks straight from your feed reader” and “displaying an up-to-date count of saves, without making items appear new again in feed readers”. More details on the del.icio.us blog.
