XRDS for non-Identity Services

I've been reading about XRDS on the YADIS site and at
and while all the examples given are identity-based (since that's what
YADIS is about) it seems to me that XRDS could be used elsewhere as
well. For example:
Let's say there is a new REST protocol X. I want to be able to
determine if site http://example.com/ supports X. I look for an XRDS
the same way as in YADIS (MIME-type or META-tag). If I find one I
look for this section:
If it exists, they support X at http://example.com/endpoint/for/X,
otherwise they do not.
1) Is this a valid use of XRDS?
2) Would doing this break YADIS or other XRDS-based protocols?
I'm not subscribed to the list, so please reply both to the list and
to me if possible :)
