Very much so. To the aggregator the entry would look like a text entry.
I'm battling the exact same problem for video comments, because people
will link to/from their HTML file, but there's actually only video content
in that HTML file. The difference is that it's often easier to you and me
to fix the HTML (by placing a <link>-element on the page) than it is to
change the RSS feed. RSS feeds are usually produced automagically by the
content management system and the user often has no influence on how the
feed looks at all.

PS. Go to bed. It's too late to be up. :o)
