When implementing this please do not mix these 3 vastly different functionalities.
RSS subscriptions are a special form of bookmarks, how to integrate with existing code/UI is more taste than technical decision. All a subscrition display needs is a way to query some feed metadata (already done for regular bookmarks).
Displaying RSS feeds requires "just" a special form of a chrome renderer to process special XML tags, keep track of entry tags (read/important/etc.) as part of parsing a feed and additional loading logic to append additional data for paged feeds. Keeping data other than a registry of entry tags should be an option (as well as purging tags for older entries) to save space and improve privacy.
