Multiple RSS channels are on the way, for general epinions or category-specific ones
Take a look at Network54, who publish one RSS (and Scripting News) channel for each forum on their site (e.g. http://network54.com/Forum/29719;xml=rss;rssversion=0.91). In order to see something as RSS instead of HTML, one uses the same URL with xml=rss tacked on, or with xml=scriptingnews.
They also provide a list of channels using OCS, which is a simple format for capturing some of the details of the channels (see http://alchemy.openjava.org/ocs). This allows portals and viewers to show the user what channels you provide. The OCS for Network54 can be seen at http://network54.com/Browse/Sports_&_Recreation/Hockey/Forums;xml=ocs.
Hope this helps,
