Okay, now I understand the difference between the two forms:

* portal_syndication/propertiesForm is for the site;
* synPropertiesForm is for a folder

I propose to add Site Syndication Settings to the actions/global and  
remove the Properties form from the SyndicationTool. I also think that  
synPropertiesForm should be moved to actions/folder and the condition  
"folder is object" removed. Oh, and I notice the RSS schema is way out of  
date! This is probably the most important thing of all.

Syndication policies can probably be best handled by a Syndication  
Settings form. The ZMI tab will be removed as will the Syndication Reports  
tab which I don't intend to implement. That's what log files are for.

Any objections?
