In the browser, what I'd love to see right now is a library that can:
1. test for existence of microcontent.
2. get the actual raw data.
3. be able to apply any transformation to that piece of XHTML.
4. allow slight modifications to the XHTML source of the microcontent
(as in adding a badge or link).
5. provide objects populated with the data. 

Once you have that, anyone can jump in and do whatever they can think
about without having to re-write all this utility code that should be
shared and re-used.
