It's sort-of offtopic - in other words, such discussions really should be on

If you are working on parsing microformats, please say so here and sign up
on the microformats-dev list!

But discussions of extending URL/URI semantics for addressing bits of
information?  I'm not sure that actually has much bearing on parsing
microformats.  But like I said, perhaps I am missing something.
