I'm just reiterating the first two microformats principles [1]:

# solve a specific problem
# start as simple as possible

Regardless of how interested we may be in a complex problem, simple

Great.  You could start documenting those, and find common patterns.   
But I predict one of those common patterns will be the use of  
currency, so you'll need to solve that problem first.
