This is already possible with categories in hCalendar.  And I suspect  
most of the rest of this discussion is already possible with existing  
microformats, so if something additional is needed, we should  
identify what specifically it is first by exploring the potential of  
existing microformats.  This all seems very speculative so far, and I  
think it would be helpful to ground it in some current real-world  

Which URLs are currently having these problems?
Which microformats have been implemented to try to solve them?
Where specifically do those microformats fall short?
