In hCalendar issues, it is ACCEPTED that each microformat should have a profile URI, like [the XFN profile].

Some issues include:

  • what domain to use? Candidates include:
    • microformats.org
    • www.w3.org
    • xmdp.org
  • what about versioning? how to keep in sync with the wiki and test materials?

One proposal is: use www.w3.org, following W3C namespace policy. As to versioning, change the profile whenever the wiki changes (within some reasonable latency, say, a couple weeks or a month). For example: an hCard Profile at w3.org, and discussion: an hCard profile that seems to work with GRDDL.
