A fascinating question. To make this more concrete, in
microformat's own wiki I would love to be able to specify "rel" for
links and "class" for data in MediaWiki syntax without having to
write out all the HTML.
I think there's certainly something worthwhile there, though I'm not
sure what. Care to create a tagspeak-examples page?
