Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with repetitions? I've
tried parsing several pages of several websites and some of them used
rel-tags on tagclouds... these would be present on every page (sidebar
of blog) thus rendering the data kinda useless.

Should/can we create guidelines for producers AND parsers alike on how
to deal with this? Like adding site-wide unique id's to the root
elements? Or is this out of the scope of microformats altogether?
