I really like this idea.  What if the landing page for the microformat wasn't the spec but it was some warm and fuzzy intro for newbies?  It could then link to the spec for those that were interested to it.

A good example of this would be the W3C WAI's intro for WCAG that they give you before you get sent right into WCAG 1.0.

I would expect that a lot of newbies start off hearing about microformats on tutorials like:

Or from presentations like:

They get linked to the spec and then get offly confused.

If the "spec itself" is on a secondary page, then the "landing" page
isn't the spec.
