RSS Reader in a CMS: Worthwhile?

When I saw that Community Server had an embedded RSS reader, I couldn't see the point. Sure, you want to publish content from select sources on your site. But what would be the point of giving users the option to subscribe the sources on your site?

Now that I've used the product slightly more, I'm beginning to see the point. If readers like your site, it's convenient for them to self-aggregate content you have preselected for them at the site. Now it falls to me to sort out what options the designers have been the site administrator. There are permissions issues to sort out; by default the feature is not granted to new users in the setup I've stumbled into.
