An even better, even more flexible approach might be: don't address length limitations in the RSS standards level at all. Allow posts of any length.

  • RSS microblog client apps could limit length at their own (or their users') discretion
  • Similarly these clients could truncate display of long posts to a user-definable length.

This makes the "micro" in microblogging more of a presentation/UX issue, which is probably where it belongs.
