Thanks for the input, the faint grey boxes will probably disappear in
the next iteration. The grey boxes surround the adr property and
children, and the geo property and children. These are both their own
compound microformats... so if you have an address, you can use those
properties - same for geo. Eventually i might drop the box altogether,
or break them out on their own. (my worry about breaking them out is
lack of space.)

According to the hAtom spec:
a Feed element is identified by the class name hfeed
a Feed element represents the concept of an Atom feed
the Feed element is optional and, if missing, is assumed to be the page
hAtom documents MAY have multiple Feed elements

it says that it is optional, so i didn't make it underlined... when it
is missing it is assumed to be the page, so maybe there needs to be away
to represent that?

Any designers out there that want to offer any advice about a more
efficient layout, i'm all ears.
