It seems like what you are looking for is a class that can manage and 
output feeds, something like what can be found at:

The key being, if I take your point correctly, that the output produced 
is always valid because you don't tweak the content directly, but from 
an object instead.

I don't have any experience with the class I mentioned, but it doesn't 
seem like a bad idea.  Assuming it allows for the custom tags that 
WordPress already outputs, and can be made to support the 1.6 plugin 
modifications to feeds, I don't see why this wouldn't be an improvement 
to the feed output WP already generates.

Didn't we have this discussion before?  Somewhat:
