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.
