One little nit to pick...

You call rel-nofollow a precedent to vote-links, when, in fact, vote  
links are older than rel-nofollow. Which means, in effect, that rel- 
nofollow was somewhat of a reinvention (though forgivable :D ).

It looks like you covered the material well. I've linked to the  
presentation and paper from http://microformats.org/wiki/
