GRDDL represents a way to specify an arbitrary transformation for an
xhtml page, my proposal is the description of a simple generic way to
embed arbitrary data inside an xhtml (like other microformats hCard,
hCalendar, etc.)

microformats are definitely orthogonal to grddl (and might also live
together happily)

As you can see in the example the format in my proposal is very similar
to hCalendar while allowing arbitrary representation.

I'm missing something?
