Not to suggest a change to the name but when you compare the size of the
specs for the Elemental Microformats such as XFN, VoteLinks, and
Rel-Nofollow with the Compound Microformats such as hCard, hCalendar and
hReview, it seems like the latter might be better suited under the
umbrella of "mini-formats".

Microformats is a good name for developers. It encompasses a large range
of different, mostly discrete and often unrelated data formats.  
It has nothing at all to do with user-facing exposure of that data.
