I think for your proposal we need a decent RSS Reader, which converts
the RSS Feeds (not the OPML, which is just an RSS Feed exchange format;

by Rockbox. Secondly we would need a Rockbox plugin which shows that
content on the display accompanying the playback of the enclosure.

Nevertheless an interesting idee.
