Top of the page is way too prominent. Research shows that the current 
norms for rss icons are unusable: 

The best web-only subscription I've seen is Feedburner feeds. Doing that 
would be something I'd like to see wait for 4.8.b

On my personal sites I hide it entirely and rely on the browser picking 
it up (I figure this is fine since my audience is technical and many use 
Firefox or Safari, but I haven't checked the stats really).
