So what is it that a layperson would call what microformats does?

Off the top of my head, they help you share information, so you can use it 
with other systems.

It's a shame that "Use It" has already been taken by Nielsen, because I 
think that the term "Use It" nicely encapsulates what microformats allows 
you to do. "Use It" also provides a nice at-first-glance explanation to 
people who haven't seen it before.
