How about hCitation then? Like the others mention, you know its a format for citations. I could live with hCite as well...

... though if I recall, at one point there was some hCite work going on which was different from the citation efforts. The two were intermingled until Ryan (I believe) sorted out the wiki pages giving us the current citation discussion pages. Has that been merged/renamed?

+1 hCitation
0/+1 hCite
-1 hBib
