One of the feature requests for aggregator.module has, for a while, been 
to allow the user to decide what tags are allowed in the feed (this may 
have actually happened actually - I haven't checked in a while). 
Ultimately, what would be most ideal would be to hook aggregator up to 
the Drupal input formats - then a user could define as many aggregator 
related import formats as they'd like, and assign them however they'd 
like to whatever feeds they have ("this one allows images", "this one 
doesn't" ... "ooh, this one always does things in a blockquote", etc.)
