I've actually been following this thread with interest because our pages
currently contain a list of the alternate formats available for any given
post. Some of our show creators make their episodes available in five or
six different formats. Take a look, for example, at:


In the bottom-right of that page you'll see a list of the different

supposed to be, that's a real-world example where it could be applied and
- because we're microformats enthusiasts - certainly would be.
