Should people think that is appropriate (and indeed, I think it is
certainly a suggestion well worth considering) I'd be more than happy
to have the content of "know your microformats" be used for, form the
basis of or otherwise be incorporated into such introductory style
In fact, that was the motivation for their development (they
constitute an appendix to my microformats book)
