RSS feed for www-tag-announce (and all W3C public lists)

Since we're back in the habit of announcing things
to public-tag-announce, I'd like everybody to know that,
like all W3C mailing lists, it has an RSS feed...

http://www.w3.org/2002/09/Lists2RSS?ml=public-tag-announce&realm=Public

I made a link from the "nearby" bar on the TAG page
  http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/

Hmm... firefox notices RSS feeds related to other pages...
how does that work? Something about "autodiscovery" as I recall...
googling yields

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS"
      href="http://www.example.com/yourrssfilename.xml" >
  -- http://jclark.org/weblog/WebDev/Blogging/autodiscovery.html

Following that pattern seems to work, though I can't find any documentation
from the firefox/mozilla folks about this.

Hmm... no, application/rss+xml is not (yet?) registered...
  http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/application/

Where the heck does it come from? This seems to be the source...

 Important change to the LINK tag

http://diveintomark.org/archives/2002/06/02/important_change_to_the_link_tag


rel="alternate" seems kinda odd... the RSS feed isn't actually
an alternative representation of the page. rel="newsfeed" would
seem like a better match. Oh well.
