Excellent analysis and summary on the media info examples. It's good
to see this making progress.

The only suggested feedback/improvement I have at this time is to
consider the principle of modularity:


and perhaps separate out a few bits, thus simplifying a potential
media info microformat.

That is, see how much of a media info posting can be marked up as an
hAtom entry, and then produce a media info schema based on what
remains, rather than what hAtom has already marked up, e.g.
* published
* comment - should probably go into an iteration of hAtom or a
separate microformat instead, see existing work:
http://microformats.org/wiki/comment (links to a lot of pre-existing work)

Also, for "alternate", see http://microformats.org/wiki/alternates (ditto).
