Please go ahead and do just that. WordPress is fairly standards 
compliant as it
stands. Third party additions to WordPress may not be, but for the WP core and
default themes WP is quite good.

<snipped a bit here>
I read the referred article(s) and the comments. I stay unconvinced thogh.
Why is it a bad thing, that I offer more than one feed format?
Feed formats are still under development and test, many clients can cope with
more than one format, and the debate on what is effective goes on.
Religion should have nothing to do with selection of format.

Well, what do you say?
