[uf-discuss] Is the world ready for head[profile]?

I recently redesigned my site and had some wild ideas about defining
the loosely-collect @rel values I have on my site (pgpkey, icon,
pingback, editURI, etc.) as well as assorted Microformat values for
@rel that do not have formal XMDP set up already. The long-term goal
is to create a Firefox Extension/Greasemonkey Script/Bookmarklet that
displays meaningful information for them. My question is twofold:
Why are most microformat profiles written in encoded html? Is
this to show that they are only drafts?
Is it beneficial to create my xhtml metadata profiles and publish
them without submitting them to a standards body? Is their harm in
publishing xhtml metadata profiles willy-nilly?
