Fellow microformateers (credit goes to Paul Wick),

I've been thinking a little on how and where form-driven result sets
can be used. And here's what I came up with:

* Forms define parameters that could be used to query a data set
* This set can be represented both as a table or as a list
* Both XOXO and XOXT may represent the same information. The only
difference is what representation makes more sense to the consumer.
* Neither XOXO nor XOXT should require the use of a form, as they are
self-sufficient in representing a set of items
* However, the form provides information that _more_ data may be
available from the server, if you follow enclosed instructions.
* Therefore, forms are perpendicular to XOXO and XOXT, rather than part of them.

Anyways, the outcome of a five-second brainstorm is that there should
not be any dependency between XOXT, XOXO, and forms. First two provide
actual data, the last one provides information on how to get more
