Allow authenticated feeds from services like Factiva
My single reason for not converting to Feedly in this moment of dire need is that about half the feeds I follow for work are from our paid Factiva service. Factiva allows me to create a feed for their alerts, and Google Reader just displays the meta-description for each result (just like they do for Google News Alerts); once I click on a story, sure, I have to log in. That's fine. However, when I converted to Feedly, those feeds aren't being pulled in. Instead, I get this error message:
"Feedly was not able to load feed: Access to this feed might require a username and password (feedly does not know yet how to access and load authenticated feeds)."
.... nooooooooo! Please, Feedly, fix this. I cannot be the only person using Google Reader to access and vet authenticated feeds.

Another vote for authenticated feeds.

Ditto. I would strongly appreciate being able to subscribe to authenticated feeds.

Another example is Pocket, so actually reading Pocket articles from Feedly by having Feedly subscribe to Pocket without having to open it to public.
