As the note Anne points to indicates, there was simply zero interest on
the part of the Atompub WG to standardize autodiscovery.
FWIW, I still think it would be helpful -- not only for feeds but also
for Atompub service documents.
For the latter, Lotus Connections began using "service" links. I know
that Windows Live Writer supports the service link and I believe there
are other implementations that support it.
<link rel="service" type="application/atomsvc+xml"
