For what it's worth, I'm seeing an increasing number of feed links
show up as search results in Google recently. (See the second entry if
you google "wordpress support thread feed plugins" for an example.)
Don't know if this is a google issue, a robots.txt issue or what not,
but I don't think its safe to assume that people will only encounter
feeds via aggregators anymore.
