Discoverable feeds for the not-so-liberal

Apparently this will let IE 7 know that the site has a feed.

Because of the dodgy MeWare I use as a CMS, i can't inject this onto every page.

I'd like to know why MS don't use the Ultra Liberal RSS Locator technique, described by Mark Pilgrim and used by many an aggregator. A case of Not Invented Here Syndrome?. (Or maybe it would lead to serious DDoS type problems if every browser in the world followed it?)
