Requirements emerge from iterating over the process we've outlined.  Top down
assertions can be integrated into the process by being treated as issues, as
they are in other standards processes.  My usage of issues is related to the
TAG findings: .

Microformats standards follow the process ( ).  All of the actions you suggest
are subject to that process.  The best way to do that is to phrase them as
questions that can be answered by applying them to real world examples.  I
look forward to continued feedback from interested parties, including you.

I hope that clears things up a bit.
