My thought was that although the source of the data might have
been an IRC/IM chat session, it was being presented in the same
way a phone or in-person conversation might be presented.

I suspect there's a more general "conversation" principle at
work somewhere here, which is one of the reasons I like the
microformats way : it's ok to not do something general.

Should it go up on the examples page, maybe with a note saying
that some think it's an edge case?
