Be careful of the infobesity.

As in I see many microformats development on this list these days  
without any questions being first
	"What is the problem we are trying to solve for the user?"

I see a lot of
	"Let's create this microformat to grab the data from the user."
	"Let's recreate this format as a microformat."

If it has no direct benefits for the user, I do not see how it can be  
For now,  it is more useful for data mining marketing agencies, not  
for users.
