Beats me!  I only have 3 years (whoa, just realized my 3rd blogiversary blew
by last week without me even noticing).

that's an excellent start.  From looking at a lot of "XML expert"s' blogs,
you're way ahead.

Hmm... I'm not sure that a blog post microformat should mandate a particular
heading level for the title.  The heading level may depend on what else you
have on the page.  Rather, with a class name for the title, the author has
the flexibility of (re)using whatever heading level is most appropriate for
the content/CMS etc.
