If there are hidden microformats in a page wouldn't it be best to at least
make it known that something is there and give the user a choice to look at
(and because of the extra resources required are unlikely to do so any time
soon) so if someone is using Operator or a future Firefox release to check
content they intend to be seen by non-browser-based tools they might want to
be able to see everything that is marked up.
