Inspiring way to make use of delicious. ;-) About the "notes", AFAIK,
del.iciou.us let users to add "notes" to the bookmark. In your case,

iTunes RSS Spec. [1] Any reason you need a microformat to announce the

Besides "announce to discover", is it possible to use Microformat Base
or Google Base to make submission and provide "search to discover"?
