Indeed.  Creating a more generalized microformat, that can be specifically 
applied to plants, seems like a pretty good idea.  This would allow for 
easier reuse of the format (in the same way that hCard is getting heavily 

Of course, all of the examples are specific to plants, so using existing 
work here would result in something heavily plant biased.  And, as Scott
