How should USM work?

I've been thinking a lot tonight about how USM should work. I know some of you don't like the orange XML icon, but it's never a good thing to fight with a tornado. So, let's start with a little orange icon. If you click on that icon, then USM is launched and you will be asked to subscribe. But is that really enough? The user might not know to click on that stupid chicklet. What if we complimented the chicklet with a little bit of user friendliness. Now, if the user wishes to find out about this little orange icon, he clicks the what is this link and I give him all sorts of instructions on where to go from there. Sound good? I have a placeholder URL that's 404 while we all think further.
