OK, so a minimal microformat for a citation could look like this:
<x class="citation [type]">
<x class="title">Item title</x>
<x class="container citation [type]"><hcitation for the container></x>
<x class="pages">n-n</x> [and anything else specific to this
particular type of citation]
I think that's essentially very similar to Mike's version too.
