Yeah, an archive of suggestions and discussions around them would be very
helpful, I should imagine. Having a quick look at the Microformats site, I
notice the only reference to any help (outside of discuss) is the 'Wiki'
link on the About page -- which, if you don't really know what a wiki
does, is a bit confusing. Maybe it's worth taking a tip from some of the
'Web 2.0'-style sites and changing the main site to use friendly, if basic
language ("Help" for wiki for example)
