I was hunting for the right word there anyways.  Microformats seem to
be/have been in the news a lot, they are topics at conventions, etc. 
However, it seems like the formats themselves are getting more
coverage than the process used to create them, when the process is as
important a development as the formats themselves; the formats grow
out of the process.  The fact that you have to reference the process
to people, rather than them already knowing about it as a result of
learning about microformats-in-general, indicates that the formats are
more emphasized than the process.  Think about it from the other side:
has anyone ever said "I heard about this great new process for
developing data formats, has it been used in practice?"
