I agree.  Universal formats are very useful, and if uF is being used
by one aspect of the program, why not by all?  I currently use XOXO to
backup my reading list / transfer it to other feed readers.  Why
should this not be able to apply across the board to all microformats?
 It may not be part of 80% or initial-draft use cases, but if it
starts happening, I'll be all for it.
