That's part of the game. I don't think any specification has a 
birthright to be fully supported by all browsers. There should be 
healthy competition between different specifications. I believe simple, 
author-friendly specifications will prevail in this environment.

Microformats are another way of developing new formats. Instead of 
having to convince browser vendors to support your favorite 
specification, microformats add semantics to HTML through the CLASS 
attribute. And style it with CSS.
