"Go around to sites full of NSFW content and document the markup"  
covers the relevant section of the process, I think.  Of course, this  
is only worth doing if you don't believe rel-tag is sufficient as  
Tantek suggested, in which case you should look for examples of where  
it wouldn't work, and see if they make up a large enough portion of  
online content to not be dismissed as outliers.

I didn't realize there was a wiki examples page already.  Where is it?

I didn't mean to suggest you weren't following the process.  I was  
just trying to point out the humorous situation I was imagining, in  
which someone walks by, sees you looking at a porn site, and then you  
turn around and try in vain to explain "Seriously, I'm doing research  
for a microformat."
