Honestly, I understand many of the problems presented by those hesitant to use full feeds. Those that are worried about content theft do have a legitimate concern. However, one solution you might want to offer those sites is the idea of putting a footer into the feed itself. That way, if the feed is scraped, the identifying information remains intact and it's easy to track down and stop thieves. This, in my opinion, is a much better solution than simply hacking the feed. It doesn't inconvenience users and it enables users to actually track down spammers. One other possibility to consider for them would be to use Feedburner to track "Uncommon Uses" of a feed. To that end, Feedburner has been an invaluable tool.
