I don't believe what he meant was to belittle your opinion, but to
remind you of a basic collective goal with microformats: simply
provide a semantic markup to solve common problems or represent common
datatypes. Specifying a format for the value that the markup describes
should be avoided. It's "forcing people" to use the markup in a
particular way that's out of the scope of what microformats are trying
Does that sound right?
