I mean any Atom 1.0 feed at all.

How would that help this issue? It was _finally_ fixed in 2.2, when  
Atom 1.0 support was added at the site level (the shipped comments  
feed is unusable, so it isn't really added, IMO). This is, along with  
various other points, an issue with WP's development process.
