You aren't in the middle. I'm deliberately stepping back so that
others can comment.  This is a sanity check for me.  Do I know what
what authoring practices are?  I thought I did, and it seems to me
that this meaning is shared with others in the community.  A good test
if to step back and find out if other people resonate with what I'm
thinking or not.

Right, but this uses the term in the definiton.  In another thread,
"metadata" and the scope of microformats are also being called into

I suppose this is a good thing, since it will force us to say what we
mean instead of implying it.  I'm not interested in writing
dictionaries though, so perhaps this work is best left to those more
patient than I.
