Just keep working through the process: that is, if you're comfortable
with the examples you've accumlated about how species is used on the
web, brainstorm (which I see you've done), throw together a strawman
uF, then say "this should be an offical microformat proposal".
Then expect it to revised. It will be, over and over.
My concern with what you've done so far is that you're carving out a
fairly large amount of namespace for a fairly niche application (yes,
what isn't outside of its domain). "class", for example, is already
used in vCard and current policy is one-name one-meaning.
Even though there's a policy of avoiding namespacing, we ended up
doing that to a small degree in hAtom with entry-summary, entry-title
and entry-content because the "deep meaning" of those items were so
tied up into the particular problem domain.
