This is a meaningless question.  The only
microformat standards that have been ratified
are hCard and hCalendar (although how this
happened is a mystery).  Everything else
remains a draft standard although some, such
as hResume, have attracted support.

As I said in my previous post, the key is
support.  Measure has not attracted support.
In addition, microformats are being
superseded by Microdata.  I can not see any
benefit to deploying Measure; nobody
supports it, and they never will.
