Expected results:

For various reasons it might be necessary to subscribe to a feed that is contained in a local file. Currently, this the only way to achieve this seems to be to set up a local web server. It would be useful if it is possible to specify the feed URI as file:///.

it sure would.  this is bug 254231, which died due to security theater and world class discourtesy of even bothering with a response.

however, it is possible.  in the Error console, enter:
top.opener.FeedUtils._validSchemes = ["http", "https", "file"];

you can then drag a file from a file explorer to a feed account folder/subfolder in Tb. make sure to select a subfolder first so its db is open.

for permanence on restart and for the Subscribe dialog, use userChromeJS and add this:
if ("FeedUtils" in window) {
  FeedUtils._validSchemes = ["http", "https", "file"];
}
