Where are you going?
Competition is good, but when your core focus is global data, which can be
none other than distributed, then quality is surely ~ to quality
contributors signing up.
Ignoring Microformats, Google have jumped a bunch of protocols based on
vanilla Xml, if you wish.
Still, if anyone can, Google can - but unlike many previous efforts, the
whole of the community isn't with them!

This seems more to be competition to A9's OpenSearch (which also uses
RSS and Atom to support queries).
The sad thing is that Microsoft has shown support for OpenSearch (it's
incorporated into IE7 in ways that I'll never be able to see
firsthand), hopelessly dividing the world into more competing
However, I'll gladly embrace hGOpenDataSearch when, you know, somebody
else goes through the work of actually making it.
