Note also existing established practice:


Ted, you may wish to consider incorporating W3C's markup of RFC 2119 terms
rather a new proposal.

IMHO there is no need for a new microformat for this.  Following W3C's

I've collected W3C's markup/styling and Ted's suggestions here:


Ted, feel free to add your POSH initial paragraph markup suggestion directly
to the wiki.
