There is danger in using terminology such as "worthy" to describe the
work done under this umbrella; and conversely, needlessly pejorative
terms to describe work done elsewhere.

A microformat may be as - more, even - worthy (which may be taken to
mean good, useful and properly considered) as anything done here.

Your URL is 404, due to the addition of a spurious final character -
but, Howcome, how come your page is not marked up with microformats? ;-)
