My cut is that there are a lot of developer issues lurking, and it  
would help to get developers attempting to make actual applications  
and contributing so that we can flesh those out as well as potential  
solutions.  There is a microformats-dev list just for them, although  
it is unfortunately now a little underpopulated.
