How to mark items as read in an Atom entry?

Does anyone out there know if there’s a standard way of denoting that an Atom entry has already been read? Maybe something like:


as an optional element inside the <entry> element?

  1. I’m synchronising a centralised aggregator (FeedOnFeeds) with a desktop aggregator (FeedThing) using Atom-over-XMPP and want to be able to mark in both when items have been read in one.

  2. I thought atom:id and other elements of Atom (atom:updated) and such should solve this. Now I’m not really sure anymore but it has been a while since I read the draft.

  3. atom:updated is only for the publisher to change I believe, and I don’t want to mangle the atom:id.

    I’m pretty sure I need another solution, but I’m willing to be convinced.
