Looks good. Some quick thoughts and nitpicks:

- I think the author/address markup issues that frequently come up 
should be addressed somewhere on the page, as with allowed date formats 
and abbr usage.
- perhaps mention the spec version of each format, or status
- I'm not sure how to represent the "should" and the "used/required if 
X doesn't exist" relationships in the spec easily.
- I think there's probably more to rel-tag that should be conveyed, and 
maybe similar cases with others (directory?) though I'm not as familiar 
with them. Not sure how to do it in the space, I know its a cheat 
- does type still only apply to adr when its in hcard and not 
standalone? I haven't read the docs in a few months.

On a more visual note I would like to see how the other formats like 
adr and geo would work broken out.. I know there isn't lot of room, but 
if you could pull it off and add some inset boxes or lines showing how 
some formats are reused in the space I think one could get a lot more 
information from the page just at a glance.

and lastly two non- content comments:
- i'd name the file something different.. maybe mf-cheatsheet.pdf or 
something.. don't want to lose it among the 2043820 other cheat sheets 
people have been creating.
- it printed on one page for me, but the bottom two lines of the legend 
got cutoff... printing from apple preview to my epson 820. maybe its my 
setup, but something to watch (top and side margins were fine)
