Based on implementation feedback from Rob and Boris, I've left the
current behavior of not sniffing feeds from text/plain.  I'm not
entirely sure whether or not we'll need to sniff feeds from
text/plain.  Firefox 3.5 should give us more information on this
point.

If we do end up sniffing feeds from text/plain, Maciej's suggestion of
not granting feeds the authority of their origin seems workable.  In
fact, we might be required to do this anyway because many sites are
vulnerable to cross-site scripting if we granted feeds the authority
of their origin.
