Limit the RSS widget from using its own url

I admit that this is not a well conceived thought but I wanted to throw it out.
There's some discussion on the premium site about individual blogs using their rss widgets to display their own feeds. This of course causes issues with an unnecessary rss feed pull as well as old data since the feeds are cached.
May I suggest a check to see if the inputted RSS feed matches the individual blog's own rss feed, kick it out with an error and suggesting to the user that they use the Latest Posts widget instead?
Marking this as 2.8 as it's not a high priority.
