It would be nice, if MozillaZine would provide an RSS-feed with the front page stories. In this way I could check for updates using my feedreader.

I just clicked on the above link using Phoenix, and got a nice view of the source code. What in the world is that page supposed to look like??

RDF (or RSS) files are not meant to be read by the human eye. They are (among other things) used as a standardized way of exporting data from news sites, weblogs etc. The feeds can be used to syndicate the content from one site on another site, or they can be read using a special feedreader (feed readers are used by people who follow a lot of weblogs).
