Those interested in pornographic material would likely find this kind
of information useful. (So they could "crop out" the stuff they don't
like. And more easily find the stuff they do like.) However, I
wasn't trying to tackle that large of a problem with this proposal.
If you have suggestions for such a Microformat feel free to suggest
them. (However, I'm not involved in the pornographic industry, so I
wouldn't be able to put it into use. If we do move forward with such
a Microformat we may want to get developers involved in that industry
involved in that discussion.)
