I worry that thinking so much about a specific use of any microformat  
(i.e. in conjunction with another) will blind us to other uses.  For  
example, if I want to describe a barrel of oil outside the context of  
currency, I would think the "oil" part would be pretty important, but  
that's missing from the examples because the focus is on the  
currency, not the oil.  I'd suggest we defer exploration of  
combinations until after the individual microformats are further  
explored on their own.
