Seconded. recipe-brainstorming is absolutely the correct place for this. Thanks!

I think that this form of ‘extension’—where you use hRecipe as far as it will take you and mark up additional common elements with your own classnames *is* POSH.
Documenting these new classnames and use cases for future recipe iterations is the best thing to do. The additional point I would make to Dave is to please try and document this work openly, as you go along (on the aforementioned -brainstorm wiki). That way you'll be benefit from Microformats process in your own work, and where desirable hRecipe additions do emerge, they'll can be drafted in tandem with your work and hopefully ease future compatibility between our work.
Thanks, and good luck,
