But is it actually being published widely enough to be considered an  
established standard we can model?  We can't determine that from one  
or two examples.  Per the process, please document a wide variety of  
such examples in the wiki, so we can keep everyone on the same page  
and avoid wasting our time with speculation about what might be  
standard publishing behavior.  Even if you've personally seen all of  
these examples, no one else has, and microformats require community
