Thanks Ciaran, I agree it should be near the html version, the only 
question is how is that achieved now? I have seen plenty of Ideas mooted 
around the wiki, its just that no-one can agree a method, its faily 
important I would say that this issue be resolved in some way, 
Microformats cant wait around till 2022 for  html5, I think it should be 
addressed here and now, and most people do not have any problems of 
putting machine data in the head of a document, for example service 
discovery links and meta details such as keywords and descriptions. its 
worth a little thought a think?

Best Wishes
