I didn't mean to imply an answer to the question I asked.  It was  
really just a question.  The about page [1] says microformats are  
"adapted to current behaviors and usage patterns," are not "defining  
the whole world, or even just boiling the ocean," and "solve a  
specific problem."  I think "is this needed?" is a question that  
should be asked of all potential microformats, to keep these  
statements true.  If the answer is yes, then great.  But it's not  
always yes.  Not everything needs a microformat.
