JMesserly, that may not be a reliable conclusion as:

1. The microformats wiki is definitive, the email lists are only "informative".



2. Absence of objections should not be considered approval

And from there further discussion/iteration can occur.

In addition, I have logged a summary of the original issues/question

Please feel free to add more details/links of your question/issue
there as well to make sure we capture it properly.
