[wp-hackers] WP's design philosophy on controlling feeds

I am wondering if it is consistent with the philosophy underlying
the design of WP to allow administrators to control the size and
frequency of _individual_ feeds directly from within WP?
Google's feedbuner's method of controlling the size of individual
feeds, viz, by appending "?max-results=X" is buggy.
So I would like to control the size and update frequency of feeds
from within WP itself. I am aware of the following two:
1) WP Dashboard
Dashboard >> Options >> Reading >> Syndication Feeds,
Show the Most Recent X number of posts
2) The file feed-rss2-comments.php has these two lines:
<?php echo apply_filters('rss_update_period', 'hourly'); ?>
<?php echo apply_filters('rss_update_frequency', '10'); ?>
BUT the above apply to all feeds -- feed for posts, feed
for all-comments etc. -- and I would like to control the
size and frequency on a feed-by-feed basis.
How can the control of individual feeds from within WP be done
by any of these approaches: (a) as ordinary user, (b) as plugin
developer, (c) as WP internal developer?
Or is controlling individual feeds from within WP so against the
philosophy of WP-design that it cannot be done at all?
