Well, just to throw an alternative view on this - I might be concerned
that supplying CSS templates for microformats might lead people to
believe that microformats *must* be written in a very specific

I think you could do this, but with the clear explanation that the
mark-up that goes with the CSS (since you'd have to make certain
assumptions*) is simply a suggested way of marking up that piece of
information.  Pitching it more in a way of "these are some ready to go
snippets and styles to get you started".

Does that make sense?

example like hReview  - I guess stuff like making XFN links look a
certain way would be easier)
