Safari RSS, most feed aggregators, the Yahoo toolbar, etc all either 
register the feed: protocal or plan to in the future. Chances are if you 
have an aggregator that link works far better than dumping you on a 
screen with a bunch of XML. If your aggregator doesn't support feed: I 
would file a bug with them.
