Much the opposite, microformats are based on real world publishing
experience, so if you can provide such experience, that would be
helpful in moving a microformat forward.
But I don't see how class="thumbnail" would work for you because the
thumbnail isn't going to exist on the submitted URL. I'd think you'd
need something more like <link rel="thumbnail">, because you're
referencing data that's related to the current document, not within
the current document.
