I appreciate your attempts to offer constructive feedback.  I hope  
this community will prove more receptive to such feedback in the  
future, even - perhaps especially - when it is disagreeable.

If you know of any examples of such GUIDs being published in HTML, I  
would encourage you to add them to the wiki:


Without such examples, this isn't likely to make it into a  
microformat, because microformats are based on current publishing  
rather than future publishing, however likely it may be.
