Firstly, we have a new mailing list for new formats:

secondly, i have looked at mrss in the past. (To me) It is just RSS
with a few additional elements. I would suggest that you look into
hAtom and use the built in semantics of HTML and use the
rel="alternative" for the different formats, and then the <a>
element's TYPE attribute to describe the media type. This is done
already in XOXO->OPML with a TYPE attribute of "application/rss"
