Exactly.  We'd all like more structured data on the web.  But  
creating structures for data doesn't always lead to more structured  
data.  Sometimes it leads to less, because between the structure and  
the data is publishers, who we have to convince to apply the  
structures to the data.  That's why we target the the most common  
(e.g. 80%) use cases.  It's nothing personal against  
hYourFavoriteDataType.  And the data isn't going anywhere, so  
whatever we don't microformat today can always be microformatted
