Hi Bill,

Writing up a straw-man model *is* premature in that it is part of doing the
*-brainstorming step in the process which should be done AFTER first doing
the research and documentation for *-examples and *-formats.


That is, assuming you do want to make it into a microformat.  If all you
want to do is start publishing the content yourself and figuring out
semantic classes to mark it up, then by all means, go ahead and experiment
with actual blog posts.

In this specific case, I'll point you to the existing media-metadata work
and ask you to please help fill that out, as it *desperately* needs *actual*
examples of *content* about media published on the web, in addition to the
documentation/contrasting of various existing formats.
