There are two actions you should investigate: 'rss2_ns' and 'rss2_item'.
The first gives you an opportunity to add some custom namespace extensions
to the feed root tag. The second allows you to output any extra tags
(prefixed with your custom namespace) before the closing item tag.

If you are the only one consuming the extended feeds, you dont' really have
to define a DTD for your extension.
