I have drafted a spec for a very simple citation microformat after
study of some other specs on mf.org.

It does not classify relationships such as "reply" or "via" as
proposed by Eran but it does capitalize on the directional quality of
a citation by adding rel="cite" and rev="cite" to hyperlinks.

For example, consider a Pingback. A blogger generates a favorable
article citing one of your articles. He writes < a href="foo"
rel="cite vote-for">foo< /a> and your blog is notified via pingback.
If your blog reacts by generating a comment with a hyperlink back to
his article, it should be < a href="bar" rev="cite">bar< /a>.
