[uf-discuss] XOXO question

My understanding is that you can *use* whatever elements you want  
inside XOXO, but none of those elements would have *meaning* to  
XOXO.   That is, XOXO parsers would simply skip over them.

That is the  magic of microformats: do whatever you want, we'll  
ignore stuff we don't understand.
