I'm not sure if we want a different format for weblogs or not, but here's another reason why it might make sense, besides the multiple-link issue that Dave mentioned:

Most weblogs are not made up of headlines; they're made up of paragraphs.

We're building RSS support into Blogger (, but to do so, we have to make the interface much more complicated for those who want to use it, with three form fields for each post, instead of a single textarea. It feels like a bit of a stretch to make most blogs fit into that format.
