Aleksander, I've never participated in the development of a  
microformat before so I went to go read up on the process on the  
wiki[0]. It directs me to email the -new list, as Brian did as well,  
so that's what I've done. (See below.) Would love to hear your  
thoughts, as well as others. I'll also throw out that I'm interested  
in seeing this through if it gains traction.

Thanks for this pointer! The OpenSearch and microformats effort seems  
like it had a much larger scope than what Aleksander has done with  
Mosembro, though…I'm thinking "simple problems first."

No worries. I've done exactly that, so we can continue this  
discussion, if anyone is interested in doing so with me, over here:
