I think the XML file idea is a poor one, because it doubles the number of
hits required on pingback-enabled sites to pingback.
Also, I don't see much point. Let's just call XML-RPC the official
protocol, and people who want to use GET instead can use a proxy (such as
mine) to do it instead.
People wanting to pingback by automated e-mail can look for
<link rev="made" href="mailto:...">
...tags instead of rel="pingback".
