Some quick thoughts:

- You create rel="mail" and rel="author" for author information.  Why
not reuse hCard?
- You create rel="documentation".  Why not reuse rel="help" (one of
the link types defined in HTML:
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/types.html#type-links )
- re: defaultWidth, minimumWidth, and allowMultiple.  Please don't
define camelCase attribute names.  I can tell you from bitter
experience working with syndicated feeds that it never lasts; you'll
end up with defaultwidth and minimumwidth in the wild within weeks, if
not days.  hCard uses "organization-name" and "organization-unit" for
class names that simply must be multiple words.  See
for example.
