Hey Kevin-

I guess you relalize now that, even if there's nothing for "widgets,"  
there is always stuff worth reusing. Remember, we're building  
microformats from the bottom up, composing new ones out of  
preexisting ones.

We don't call it the "lowercase semantic web" for nothing. :D

I think many of use have found that using all lower case works much  
better on the web, so its become a rule-of-thumb for developing  
microformats (maybe this needs to be on the wiki somewhere?).
