[uf-discuss] Major change to microformat specs without prior discussion or notification

The change made recently, to the hCard spec:


affects not only hCard but also other microformats; it has implications
for both current parsers and published microformats, but seems to have
been made without prior notification or debate.

Note, for example, that it precludes an event's hCalendar and the event
organiser's hCard from sharing the URL in a single "A" element.

I propose that the change be undone; and not reintroduced until the
implications are more fully understood and widely agreed.
