Andy, it is actually a bit inappropriate to jump-in and rewrite a spec that
is that well established without at least discussing how to rewrite it
first, or emailing the editor at a minimum.

There has already been work towards making the specifications more
readable/approachable etc. and I've documented this task on the to-do page


I'm going to revert the reorganizational changes you made to both hCard and
hCalendar for now, and would ask that you please refrain from doing so

Please raise suggestions here on the list first and let's discuss them.  For
established specifications in particular (and perhaps any with an "editor"),
we really should respect that role until/unless it actually proves to be a
hindrance (which it hasn't so far).

Thanks much for your understanding,
