  I assume you've seen these pages:


I suspect the wiki is sparse because there aren't many real world  
examples from which to draw semantics.  There are two examples on the  
examples page and one points to bibliography markup for a plain-text  
book (as I believe all Project Gutenberg books are).  So that leaves  
us with only one example from which to draw semantics, prompting the  
question: is there really a need for such a microformat?
