Right, pages should use profile URIs, where possible. At this point,  
we don't have profile URIs for every microformat (we're working on  
it, Dan!), so that's a bit of a problem.

However, I just wanted to make another point– the presence of a  
profile URI in a document by no means guarantees that there is any  
content in the page which uses the semantics of that profile. At best  
profile URIs are hints.
