I think I know what's been bugging me about this thread. I
as a consumer don't care about microformats. What I care
about is content that's up-to-date and relevant. As a
consumer, I want to know when we're getting together next
week, not what's marked up with hCal.
The fundamental thing here is that uFs are a means to an
end. They gain usefulness to the extent that they make
things that I already want to do easy.
My mom would never search for hcards (no matter the syntax)
any more than she would search for images in a PNG format.
It's a niche search that could be performed by a small
group of technical people and it's no surprise that
general-purpose search engines haven't made it a priority.
Nor do I think such support would add much value for most
