I want to change my original Feedburner feed from http://blog.website.com to http://www.website.com (with appropriate underlying changes to make sure the blog actually resolves at the updated address). The question is: If I do not make any changes to my Feedburner Feed Address - http://feeds.feedburner.com/website - is it safe to assume that I do not lose any subscribers? (I am using Wordpress with a plugin to direct all RSS subscribers to the Feedburner Feed Address.)

This falls in the "dumb question" category, no doubt, but given that I have a pretty decent number of subscribers, I don't want to take any chances. And trying to get help on this through Feedburner seems impossible.

You are correct.  As long as people have subscribed to the feedburner URL and not your direct RSS URL.  As long as you point your feedburner feeds to your new address, it will be transparent to your subscribers.

Its one of the benefits of using a third party VS direct subscriptions.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
A
