I don't have $10,000 to bribe people with, so I guess I'll just have to put my blog on the line instead. Six months after whatever (n)Echo is to become is released, I will hereby cease to provide ANY form of RSS.
Yeah, there's a plan. First, necho needs a lot more functionality before it can replace RSS. There are a lot of useful modules, there's categories (of what possible use is subtitle, for goodness sake?) - and so on. BottomFeeder already supports necho (in the dev stream for 3.1), and I have a necho feed here - but there's no way I'm getting rid of the RSS feed - it's more fully functional, and - for the forseeable future - more easily consumed.
