FWIIW: The two I create are not xdocs, so:

If the above doesn't change your opinion I'm fine w/ changing my names. Heck
rss.rss and atom.atom suit me fine. With auto-discovery a user ought never
type them in...

Let's get concrete:

They are all the same index (sorta) first one human readable, second two
computer readable.

BTW: Here is an example of such links. Feed aware browser know to find a
feed for the page from these.

<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

<title>Adam Jack (Internal)</title>

<link rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS"
href="" />
<link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" title="RSD"
href="" />
