We've noticed this now with trackbacks and other such items (even book
module navigation, althought this may have been fixed now) appearing in
"full text feed" mode in RSS...you have to do special checking in your
module to exclude extra data when it's being uses in the RSS feed.

The hard part, imho is to convert **all** core modules to use this. and with

Taxonomy I don't think so, but book module navigation, certainly. Which
brings up the point...do we then need an extra.tpl.php? Or options in
taxonomy that says "Append taxonomy terms after node body"? Best not to
touch the taxonomy issue for now, I think.
