Ironically, this is exactly the sort of thing microformats are against
using--it's not human-readable.  This means it's likely to be out of
date, even when it's present.  Leave it to the code to determine if a
page uses microformats, instead of putting the burden on the author.

Didn't someone already write a microformat spider/robot/crawler?
