The way around the restriction is to proxy the rss fetch with your server. i.e.

request.open(..., '/fetchfeed.php?id='+ id, ...);

where fetchfeed.php uses php to open the rss feed and writes it to the
output stream (with the appropriate content type header).

However, obviously this will come from your server's IP.
