[microformats-discuss] Basic question about microformat validity

In thinking about parsing microformats, I've been butting up against  
a level of imprecision in the specs on the wiki.

For example, in the case of hCal it's unclear from the examples given  
at http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar#Format what constitutes a  
valid hCal event. Do the tags *have* to be SPAN's and ABBR's, or can  
they be DIV's? Can there be multiple classes applied to elements, or  
is '<span class="vevent such-and-such">...</span>' an invalid hCal  
event? Is there a stable spec here, or is it still being settled?
