Whoops. Well, you've got two for the price of one now.

Microformats certainly present a good way for replacing APIs to some extent.
For instance, last.fm do not provide a person's homepage in their API profile
call - but you can use the data published through the API in combination with
the hCard published on the person's profile. In RDFizing last.fm, this is
indeed what I am doing... :)
