That's quite a bit of extra metadata -- IIRC the species tree has a
height of about six or seven at its shortest. Is that really necessary
on EVERY page mentioning a scientific name in a biological context?
Could an automated tool be written to, when the text "Homo sapiens" is
encountered, automatically mark it up into the correct species
microformat? is Genus Species a fairly unique way of identifying
something? Or are there collisions?
I think questions like those will help your case -- sending dozens of
links to this list will not.
