I think this is something better handled by the server than 
the XML. In the Apache framework, that would be
to put a Redirect directive in one of the server's configuration

In the Frontier framework, a responder could send the 
	Location: http://newsserver/path/to/rss/file

On a related topic, isn't someone working on XMLizing Linux configuration,
or was that just something I saw in someone's slides at a talk somewhere...
