Right, so you'd be one of the people who'd use this plugin. A plugin
fulfilling this role would need to do the following things:

1. Provide code to output the RDF and RSS.92 (easy, just copy-paste
wp-rdf.php and wp-rss.php).
2. Edit $wp_query->feeds to include 'rdf' and 'rss' (as those two
would be removed with the core change).
3. Remove the WP rewrite rules that redirect requests for RDF and RSS 0.92.

That should be, what, half a day's work? I'd do it myself if I had the time.
