Here's the IRC log regarding the change to the wiki:


I agree with the change - I don't agree with not running it past the
microformats-new list. It seems like a fairly far-reaching
change/update. It invalidates the need for "mfo" in hcard, doesn't it?
If it were applied to the rest of Microformats, it would invalidate the
need for "mfo" entirely.

There are logs - so it would be wrong to say the decision was made in
private, it was done on IRC, without notification to microformats-new.
