annevk just pointed this out to me on IRC: <http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20070829#l-229 

In short, at least in August 2007, Technorati took whatever they  
received (regardless of MIME type) and ran the algorithm for "feed or  
HTML" from the Content-Type sniffing section, and ignored anything  
that didn't from that come out as a feed.
