Google Web Master Tools is now Blocking external links in RSS Feeds

I have an RSS feed on my website which I use a bit like twitter. I post comments and they link to URLs all over the web.

GWT has picked up this feed as a sitemap and for a long time didn't report any issues with it.

However now it is reporting all external links as:
URL not allowed
This url is not allowed for a Sitemap at this location.
It makes sense, a sitemap is for defining internal and not external pages.

I wonder if this is just a GUI change or if the algo has been improved?

I've actually seen some video sitemaps which are hosted on the video server website but contain links to a specific websites video pages. I wonder if Google still accepts them?
