I'm still not sure there's anything there that can't be served with  
the term ‘rich web page’ or ‘semantic web page’ — two terms already  
in use. What is the semantic way to mark up a business card? hCard.

If some reference to the page specifics is required in documentation  
somehow, does ‘microformatted content’ or ‘microformatted web page’  
not suffice?
