The tag scheme is RFC 4151: http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc4151
The sid namespace appears to be for identifying collections of information
("The sid namespace facilitates the identification of collections of
information assets. A collection of information assets could be an
organization, a website, a publisher, or a database."). The point here is
to identify a specific event. The tag scheme is similarly used to identify
specific entries, as opposed to collections. I suggest that tag is a better
match than sid ("more semantic", just to tie this back to microformats).
