Google indexes .xml files along with many other file types.  Do you have a link to your ror.xml file on your site that Google may have crawled to find the file?  Simply viewing pages with the Google Toolbar installed can get your pages indexed.
If you don't want the page indexed, create a robots.txt file

You can sign up for Google Webmaster Tools (free) and request the page be removed from the index.
