Did you do that?

Or, to take another approach: Is the tutorial useful? If yes, that should be 
said. Is a link to the tutorial included in the hCard wiki? Along with the 
other links to examples and tutorials there? If not, why not?

It would be better to encourage people to do work related to microformats. So 
instead of "There is something important missing" it would be better to 
say "I'd recommend to add this point to the tutorial". The first sounds 
like "you did something wrong", the second sounds like "it's interesting, i 
read through it and found additional ideas". It is not only important, what 
you say, but although, how you say it. 

My statement was by far overdrawn, i know that. But it seems necessary to me 
to encourage thinking about it.
