We can have a planet.drupal.org.
Maybe we can provide blog hosting to people without homes;  and
aggregate them along with the others with already existing blogs. I
would prefer if the drupal-based companies take care of this; it would
benefit their publicity, and keep away hosting hassles from
blogs.bryght.com / blogs.civicspace.org / blogs.anybody?

I'm only unsure about the inclusion policy: what is the eligibility
criteria for getting added to planet.drupal?

I'd rather use tags / categories; like i do. That way even my feed to
planet.drupal can be a drupal-posts-only feed.

+1. Decentralized == robust.
