This makes sense to me. Preventing people from using the term
"microformat" for their own set of class names is an uphill battle;
the term "microformat" is simply too attractive. Besides, people
should be encouraged to play. Most private sets will quickly die a
natural death and do no harm. Those who survive in the wild deserve
the capital M.
