Lack of Interest Navigational Links In Atom Feed

    Looking at the raw XML received as Atom feed of any forum we can see the following link tag with rel attribute set to self.

    HTML:
    <atom:link rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" href="http://xenforo.com/community/forums/announcements/index.rss"/>
    It would be nice if we can get the navigational/pagination links as well. GData (Blogger and other Google products) have rel property set to "first" and "last" and if applicable,"next" and/or "previous" as well. This makes machine readability and content discovery lot more easier. I am aware that appending "?page=X" in the standard Atom URI works as expected but machines can follow a link but virtually can't guess a link.
