Actually, this list is an acceptable place for this. Here's why:

You'll probably notice in our http://microformats.org/wiki/process  
that we advocate developing microformats only when semantic xhtml  
constructs and compounds fail to capture the semantics. So, the  
process of developing any microformat necessitates discussing  
semantic xhtml.

Also, IMHO, microformats are an outgrowth of the movement towards  
semantic xhtml usage on the web. So, discussion of microformats just  
doesn't make sense outside of the context of semantic xhtml.

So, feel free to ask questions about semantic xhtml, because those  
questions need to be asked before we can talk about microformats.


PS- I've also got a series of blog posts lined up to cover general  
semantic xhtml stuff, [http://www.microformats.org/blog/2005/10/19/ 
more-than-styling/] being the first of this series.
