There are two problems here, and I think we should avoid approaching  
both at once.  Just as a blog description was tabled until after  
hAtom, I think a search results description should be tabled until  
after there are microformat search results to be described.  How  
exactly is Yahoo indicating which HTML is search results?  That's not  
part of the OpenSearch standard as I'm reading it, and I don't see  
anything equivalent to OpenSearch's RSS and Atom syntaxes in Yahoo's
