Thanks, Manu.  Our plans for Oomph are to continue to maintain and improve it moving forward. There is an implementation (oomphx.js) already posted on Codeplex for supporting hAudio; I'd love to see more microformats supported moving forward. Part of the reason we've put the whole project on Codeplex is in the hopes that we can garner a community around the project who will also help move it forward.
As far as Ubiquity, from the brief look I took, it appears similar to IE8 accelerators and web slices [1], no?

Great stuff, Karsten! Looking forward to seeing where this goes... what
are the next steps, if you're allowed to elaborate? Where are you
putting your efforts for the next 3-6 months regarding Oomph? Supporting
more Microformats? Doing more stuff like Ubiquity[1]?

What are the future goals for Oomph?
