Atom feeds should have a <link rel="self"> element (or, authors should have more control of optional feed elements)

Atom feeds should have a self-referential link element. It should point to the (canonical) request URL, to enable the feed to be located by clients that only have access to the feed's content, and no other meta-data such as location.
<link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://example.org/feed.atom"/>
Is there an easier way to allow problems such as this and #787 (both of which are optional according to the spec) to be dealt with by authors rather than the framework? I'd deal with it myself, but (a) I don't want to dig into the low-level framework unnecessarily and (b) I can't see how with the high-level Feed() stuff.
