Evidence and "definitive references" are not "anecdotal".
A Google search for "West Midland Bird Club Birmingham branch" gives, as
the first result:
West Midland Bird Club: Birmingham Branch
The West Midland Bird Club's branch in Birmingham, England.
Note that the second line of that quote, the description, is from
<meta name="Description" content="The West Midland Bird Club's
branch in Birmingham, England.">
<meta name="DC.description" lang="en" content="The West Midland
Bird Club's branch in Birmingham, England.">
(most likely the first) and does not appear on the page concerned.
Compare it with the description in the second result of a search for
Designed for humans first and machines second, microformats are
a set of simple, ...
Instead of throwing away what works today, microformats intend
to solve ...
Those ellipses are a literal quote, not my shorthand.
