I guess this would be a good time to bring up XMDP profiles again...
Though like with any client side microformat support it is a case of
what you're doing with the data when you say you "support it". If
support consists of detection + integration of a limited set of (say
Outlook/Exchange friendly) formats (hcal, hcard) then there is less
of a reason to care about new formats (just updates to existing ones)
vs. the case of trying to build live clipboard support for all data
