Excellent. I very much appreciate the willingness of this community to
provide guidance. This note suggests that it is appropriate to simply
add properties to an existing microformat if they do not exist
already. I could find very little information on extending
microformats so I have been reluctant to do this without better

Given this response I will proceed forward with adding our own
extensions to hRecipe and continue to monitor this board in case there
are additional comments.
