[uf-rest] Class names from Rails?

"dom_class" is intriguing feature of the the new simply helpful plug- 
in, which I suspect might be destined for Rails 1.3.  I wonder if  
this might make it easier to embed microformats in Rails applications  
by keying of appropriate Class names.  Or, whether we could somehow  
"teach" dom_class about differnet microformats mappings?!?

DOM Class names

<%= dom_class(object) %>
Creates a CSS class name based on the object’s class – so a  
ProductionType object would get a DOM class of production_type.

On its own, this new function maybe isn’t as exciting as the dom_id  
and render improvements, but it’s used in the next feature, and it’s  
encouraging good practice by having clear, readable and consistent  
class names for your DOM objects.
