What I mean by "metadata" is information about content, which already
makes up the bulk of microformats, e.g. class names, rel values, tag
names, none of which is readily visible to humans. Making content
visible is a principle; making such metadata visible is not. The
difference with ISO dates is we've previously defined them as content;
I'm suggesting that's a mistaken definition, as these dates don't
function as content in our reference standard iCalendar.
