Feature request: support shortcode output format for RSS feeds #5204

There are multiple cases where people try to render the .Content slightly differently for RSS feeds:

This is possible to do after #3220 was implemented, by setting page = ["HTML", "RSS"] and adding SHORTCODE.rss.xml template variant. Unfortunately, this setting produces per-page RSS feeds which is suboptimal and can mislead some RSS readers (wrong RSS link).

Also there is slightly adjacent request to allow page context in shortcodes:

Feature proposal

  1. Allow shortcode output format to be selected based on home/section output format.
  2. Maybe also use page Kind in the shortcode template lookup order. This would allow to solve the adjacent use case

Plus it makes sense to document format- and language-dependent shortcode lookup order here
