I don't like the binary opposition. I don't feel like I "get it", but
I have used XOXO to good effect already. I think I understand why it's
better than some random XML format.

Yes, you guys keep saying that, and I am prepared to believe it. So,
what were the problems and how did the microformats solve it? I can
understand the reluctance to answer that question directly, since it
opens to door to all sorts of "but what about..." kinds of objections
that fall outside the sweet spot.
