I agree with flikx: I've got several topics excluded just because I'm not interested in them at all, so I would be nice, not to have that stories in the headline mailings, either.
But merging the slashboxes' headlines with the Slashdot news articles would get a big mess, I think. It would lower the focus of the Slashdot articles, which most people interested in. That's why they're reading Slashdot and not, because they want to read just the slashboxes including a Slashdot Slashboxes. If you like such things, read the Cheesy Portal [slashcode.com] or GeekBoys [geekboys.org], a (currently shut down) huge configurable Cheesy Portal.
Or did you think about merging whole extern articles with Slashdot articles? I think this wouldn't work a) because of copyright restriction and b) because of RDF files usually don't contain whole articles.
P.S.: I'm not really sure, what exactly Daniel means with "mixing slashboxes and news"...
