I don't think you need to put "Theming" between quotes. A feed shouls be 
pushed trough the theme layer (in addition to you excellent suggestions). 
IMO an RSS feed is just another way of looking at your content, so I really 
see no reason why for this way of looking at content we chose to circumvent 
the theme. 

FYR: this is now a "proper" MVC system handles feeds: 

or for the more Ruby savvy: 
(its not that obvious because the XML class is used instead of writing 
plaintext XML, like the cake example does)

Both build the XML in the theme layer. Which is Good [tm].
