Their seems to be a little interest in the idea anyhow.

Is the best approach here to look at web wide general forms that are
also (or could be) represented by an API or is it best to look
specifically at comments (for instance) whether an API for commenting
is present or not?

I'm going to try and collate some examples and the like together when
I get a chance, starting with the likes of APP, Wordpress, Flickr,
Blogger and the like. Is the best bet to use the microformats wiki in
the first instance or to do this elsewhere until any sort of way
forward is proposed and generally agreed upon?
