[uf-dev] Displaying hidden microformat in Operator (and elsewhere)

I think there needs to be distinction drawn between what microformatted 
data prioritised for communication to the user and microformatted data 
available when queried.

1. The concept of "visible on the screen" is problematic when it comes 
to accessing content in Firefox via assistive technology like a screen 

2. If you want to extract all contacts or citations or whatever from a 
document, you want all of them not just the visible ones.

Does that make sense?
