[uf-discuss] CFP Microformat

I recently posted a message to xml-dev [1] asking if anyone knew of a 
format (XML schema) for a Call For Participation (CFP), which 
typically is associated with a conference or symposium.

I then thought that perhaps a microformat would be nice also.

Obviously the conference could have a page that uses hCalendar for 
the event schedule, such as, [2].
However, they did not use hCalendar for their CFP [3].

Perhaps a CFP could use hCalendar plus some additional conventions.

For example,

<dl class="cfp">
<dt class="vtodo"><abbr class="due" 
class="summary">Abstract Due</span></dt>
<dt class="vtodo"><abbr class="due" 
class="summary">Acceptance notification</span></dt>
