I've read through mfo-examples several times now. I think the
mfo-examples problem description attempts to accomplish two things:

- Object opacity (opaque-design-pattern)
- Collections    (collection-design-pattern)

I agree that there is a need for object opacity. It seems that this
should be a design pattern more than it should be a Microformat.

I do also think that there should be a design pattern to specify a
collection. These are two different patterns, not one. They should be
addressed separately (as per the Microformats process of breaking larger
problems into smaller problems). Do we agree or disagree on this point?
