Using RDF as a model would have its advantages:
* the W3C test harness could be reused
* it's straightforward
* some of the modelling has already been done
* Semantic Web integration comes free
there are links to several microformat2rdfxml XSLT transformations - at
least some of them are less-than-perfect, but should be good enough to
(incidentally a lot of the material there originated on a page called
http://esw.w3.org/topic/MicroModels - it got rebranded :-)
SPARQL-capable RDF tools are available for pretty much every
language/platform, and test SPARQL would be pretty easy to write. SPARQL
results can appear in XML or JSON - which could be handy in this context.
There's also a JSON syntax for RDF, and at least two online converters:
The RDF/JSON result would no doubt look different from the intended
microformat/JSON, but it shouldn't take much script to convert for testing

Sorry Manu, nitpicking, expanding your shorthand -
- Agree on a serialization format for Microformats (JSON/XML/N3/etc).

- Agree on a serialization format: RDF
Agree on an RDF model : RDF (easy one that)
Agree on a serialization format for RDF model : RDF/XML (I'm assuming)
