Spun out of bug 389687; we shouldn't have two different behaviors for feed: links depending on whether they come from chrome or content. I see two options:

1) Special case feed:, so that nsICDC uses the current UI for feed:, and leave everything else the way it is.

2) Make the current feed UI generic, and make that the nsICDC UI, so that the warning will always have a popup for picking a handler (essentially, our own take on FF3's choice box).

I'd be in favor of exploring 2, since I think the popup menu is slim and clean enough that adding it to the warning dialog is a win.
Given the OS's propensity, in absence of an explicit user choice, to pick an app at "random" if you have >1 apps for the protocol installed, 2 sounds like a very good idea.

Nominating for b2 because of l10n impact, but if Stuart's not working on this, this probably gets kicked from 2.0.
