My view on this is that site managers shouldn't have to "drop down" into  
the ZMI to manage relevant site settings. See the discussion regarding  
portal properties - ideally they shouldn't have to switch between a  
skinned view and the ZMI for anything that is site relevant. A side effect  
of this might be, at some point in the far future, no more DTML to look  
after. However, I've just found the corresponding PythonScript (the action  
is object/syndication) so I will just be changing the extension profile  
after all. I suggest that object syndication and site syndication should  
be two distinct actions.

I think we must be talking at cross purposes here. It sounds to me like  
SyndicationInfo is like an Annotations adapter for a folder. Whether the  
information is stored as an "opaque" (this may be the wrong term) object  
in the folder or using an Annotations adapter seems moot (English sense)  
to me and, therefore, not important right now.
