I don't think it's quite that simple.  What about cases where  
microformats exist within <form>s, but not as part of <input>s?   
Here's the first example I found of an hcard wrapped in a form:


What is the benefit of using the same root class name for forms  
accepting a microformat as we use for the published microformat?  Why  
not just use something like class="vcard-input"?  In addition to  
avoiding such conflicts, that seems more descriptive.
