There has been some discussion of a "FAQ microformat" on IRC.  I'm not
sure whether we got anything on the mailing list or the wiki, however,
so there may not be anything in the archives.

Perhaps, but I don't think we've even gotten as far as documenting
current examples.  See http://www.microformats.org/wiki/process for

strawman proposals.
