I agree with Brian, but I wonder if there isn't a disconnect here  
regarding what we mean when we talk about "microformat-related  
work."  I first assumed that referred to work in developing  
microformats, which, as Brian said, is either an open process or not  
really a microformat.  But it could also refer to work around  
microformats, e.g. X2V, Tails, user stylesheets, etc.  No one is  
documenting the latter until they're ready to use.  I'm not sure  
which Lucas was talking about.
