About what is being done is valid or not, all I can say is that my RSS
Watchlist feed doesn't pass W3C validation...

or feed validator test

My Atom Watchlist feed passes both tests but with recommendations related to
this not unique id issue:

Finally, it must be remembered that, as I have proved, such a popular feed
reader like Google Reader misses items from Wikipedia Watchlists very often due
to this problem. In fact, I was using it to follow changes in Wikipedia
articles I track but, as many of these articles are being controlled against
vandalism, I can't accept these losses. Therefore, while this issue is fixed, I
am following my watchlist manually, ignoring feeds.
Obviously, I don't know how may people use Google Reader to control their
Watchlists but for me, this is a serious problem with (I think) an easy
solution.
