Nice to know that Joseph Walton’s uber-geeky Unpolluted script to check compression, cacheability and conditional requests on something like an RSS feed gives me a clean bill of health.

Oh, okay: it does now, after I cleaned up after myself by adding

mod_gzip_item_include mime ^application/xml$
mod_gzip_item_include mime ^application/atom\+xml$
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType application/xml "access plus 30 minutes"
ExpiresByType application/atom+xml "access plus 30 minutes"

to my .htaccess file. Oddly enough, when I tried the other Google-recommended way of telling mod_gzip to add things, file \.xml$, it ignored me. Dunno why.
