Feed Name Server

While thinking on my infrastructure my "techie" instinct always warns me on what will happen when my feed will not be available for readers (Web service down) or even worse what will happen when a I will want to change my feed properties such as: address, title, description and more.

This problem is emphasized further considering the options of chosing between "in-house" feeds or using feed processing services such as FeedBurner – the "lock-in" is very high.

I know there several low level techniques to handle a feed change of address on the web server level, but still I wanted to find out whether someone knows about a public service that works on the principles of a Domain Name Server but for feeds. I believe a simple directory with XML api that will be integrated into readers would do the job just fine.
