I also added this feed, but there's no Info about the Clips, no synops nor any info about video/time and such. I'm thinking about giving Boxee Apps a shot, and creating one for Archive.org, but I really don't know where to start other than http://developer.boxee.tv/boxee-applications/
Anyone else thinking about doing the same thing? Or am I alone? ;)

I think one quick way to do it would be to use pipes... You could create a separate pipe for each category perhaps?

Will it be possible to "subscribe" to archive.org content by "archive subject" (keyword / keyword phrases)?
