MythMusic doesn't use daap; it accesses the Myth database & filesystem 
directly.  To experiment with mfd, you'd need to run 'mfe', which is a 
proof-of-concept frontend for the mfd stuff.  Note that mfe will not 
show iTunes shares (yet?) because it looks specifically for mfd 
services, not generic daap services via Rendezvous.

On that note, if anybody can figure out why I can't get mfe to work with 
RendezvousProxy, I'd be very grateful.  I'm guessing it's some kind of 
quirk in the zeroconfig client library (is that part of libopendaap?), 
since the mfd server works just find (I can see my mfd share with other 
DAAP clients via the proxy).

Hmmm, did you try running 'mfd -p <port>' ?
