Thanks Scott - sorry I didn't spot this earlier. I think it would be worth re-opening this issue since there was no conclusion.

What appears to be missing from the original discussion was input from implementers e.g. how would an existing client implementation react to an empty HTML form marked-up with microformat classes? What are the constraints on taking this concept further?

Are there any implementers out there who could comment?
