From Pingback/Trackback to automatic feed error notifiers

Ziv Caspi's Post got me thinking about how Aggeregators should handle broken feeds. Perhaps a standard needs to be created in which a broken feed's author could be notified automatically whenervr an aggregator or any other client could read it. perhaps it should provide a link in the RSS itself (dah - what's if that is broken as well..?) or maybe there should be a mechanism similar to pingback/trackbak that instead of notifying linkage, notifies about feed errors...

Any volunteers..?

As a matter of fact, If i wanted to do this myself, how would i go about suggesting additions to the standard?
