That been happening out there in the real world with html for years with 
wysiwyg editors!
... and the fact that some of them generate bad or bloated markup is not 
going to stop the masses from using them.

Personally I think it would be nice to see authoring tools for microformats 
built into wysiwyg editors
.... I'm sure its coming soon...

- I even had a go last year at modifying a javascript-based html editor to 
auto-detect hcards and vevents and allow authoring and editing of them with 
simple forms but decided I needed to learn to optimize javascript better 
first (it was way too slow!) ... anything designed for "the masses" to use 
must be fast enough to for an impatient person on an old slow machine!
