I'm using RSS as a tag for some of my blog posts, and I was using them without any problem.

The issue is this: when trying to retrieve the feed of this tag, from

It's not possible to do yet due to a bug in Wordpress core.

A workaround was provided in Wordpress ticket

function disable_canonical_redirection_for_tag_feeds() {
if ( is_feed() && is_tag() )
    remove_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_canonical' );
add_action( 'wp', 'disable_canonical_redirection_for_tag_feeds' );
