I'm aware of that, but RSS is more of an index to documents
rather than a text document that someone would want as a 
relavant hit. The search engine should be indexing the 
documents themselves rather than a an index of the documents.

It is unfortunate that RSS doesn't use XLink and doesn't use
ISO 8601 dates. On the other hand, the default mapping handles
RSS pretty well, mapping the title and description elements.
