Quoting from About Microformats: "Designed for humans first and
machines second, microformats are a set of simple, open data formats
built upon existing and widely adopted standards." This also implies
they should be easy to implement. Co-locating your own box and
rocking mod_rewrite can hardly be considered easy implementation of a
"simple" data format.

Your taking the elitist way out. I believe it's a microformats
problem to encourage adoption and to figure out a standard that will
work for the most people. Which is better? A massive dissemination of
usable tag metadata, or a smaller subset of tag metadata with pretty
PS. Nice change of the subject line.
