Going off on a tangent from this point:  Why not?

I can identify some use cases where aggregate ratings data is published 
on web pages 
http://webcenter.polls.aol.com/poll?view=69043&pollId=69096 just to pick 
two completely at random).  What microformat should I use to make this 
data more easily accessible? 

Seems to me that hReview is an appropriate starting point -- though it 
would certainly need fractional values and also some way to indicate 
weighting (something like "Based on <span class="weight">131</span> 

Of course it's late and perhaps this is obviously nuts in some way.  
Please let me know.
