Hi Derrik!  Welcome to the discuss list.

We have defined a process for suggesting, researching and defining
microformats and we encourage those persons interested to read that
and try and follow it [1].

A first good port of call though is to chuck a message up on the
-discuss list and let the community know what you have in mind and
what you want to achieve.  You may find others are having the same
problems, or alternatively that they've already come up with a way to
do what they need to do with existing microformats.
