--- sorry, i missed that. But i think i am still confused :) it's too
early for me. In regards to latter (the citation microformats), the
best documentation at the moment is here[1], but that is purely a
brainstormed-straw-proposal, there are several things wrong with it
and much it is still trying to be flushed out or is out-right
incorrect - so don't consider it anywhere ready to be a draft - and
therefore any of those properties shouldn't be spread around the rest
of the wiki because they are more than like to be

well, i certainly wouldn't add anything here:

This just talks about the class-design-patter
so i don't think that would be the best place to say that properties
are universal across all formats.

I'm not sure about how or where to add a "no namespace, so all
property names are universal" discussion to the process page?
I'll leave that up to others to discuss where that best belongs - i
thought we had a page(s) that talked about it, maybe they just need to
be linked-to or made more prominent?
