First, I didn't see this until a just little earlier today when I cleaned
out my Google spam box (6000+ spam messages and then all of your emails, for
some reason.)

Second and last, my comment to you based on your position RE:prefixes is
that it is just begging to have the Microformat community splintered for
lack of a viable solution to a real problem.  Maybe prefixes aren't the
answer, but I haven't heard an alternate presented.
