hResume isn't my area of expertise, but whatever the result should 
probably fit certifications or other similar accreditation. Some I'm 
not sure how I feel about the use of <p class="diploma" title="Master 
Jedi"> here

I'd think something more along the lines of:

  - type
  - title (class="title" not title="")
  - awarded / date
  - institution / org
  - summary

But I haven't looked at the hresume-brainstorming page in detail nor 
have i looked at some of the other linked example formats. That's just 
off the cuff comments.

Another alternative (which may or may not be liked by others on the 
list) is to just go with the examples that are out there now and use 
hcalendar for marking up the education items and then CSS to really 
give the display of the information a good kick in the rear.

just my pre-coffee 1 cent

(my cents aren't worth 2 pre-coffee)
