i'm sorry, i'm completely lost now. Are we trying to get a solution to
a non-problem? did we not discuss the whole namespacing '.'
(dot-notation) as a bad idea?

has there ever been a time that we have NEEDED a set container in an
existing microformat? and any further development of new microformats
would have container built into them when they are being designed.

i feel this conversation is attempting to create a solution to
something that isn't a problem.

Can we take a set back from trying to produce mark-up and describe the
exact use-case and need for this? i for one do NOT see a need for any
sort of SET format, HTML, XOXO and individual microformats convey all
the needed semantics already.
