Yes, hence why I said "It may not be part of 80% or initial-draft use
cases, but if it starts happening, I'll be all for it."
I'm not saying that we as a community should design microformats
specifically for the purpose of data storage. I'm saying we shouldn't
stand against their eventual propogation into that arena, becase they
could be useful there too.
