I'll agree with you on certain RSS feeds (which are quite few in number), but I will disagree in general as it's the application which controls this; most RSS feeds present the full content (some including images, like BoingBoing and BGR). FreeRange (for instance) even has an option that allows you to skip the short synopsis and always go right to the full article; I don't use it myself (I like the short synopsis) but it does work fine.
