[uf-discuss] a very early draft proposal hTagcloud

Considering the fact that many tagclouds are based on actual numerics
(ie, 50 bookmarks on this tag), it might be nice to have access to
that information further than just a rating.  imho, styling is not the
microformat's job, the implementor can add extra classes or whatever
to make that work if title isn't good enough for that.

However, as long as whatever is finally decided requires a list (which
IS XOXO, read the spec :P), it can be read (with some minor tweaks) by
XOXO parsers so I'll work with whatever is decided ;)
