That seems to presume, wrongly, a 1:1 relationship between the included
data and the microformat. Consider:

        <span class="adr" id="myaddress">my address<span>

        <span class="adr" id="mysecondaddress">my second address<span>

        <a href="#????" rev="propertyOf" class="locality">Birmingham</a>

It also requires publishers to make a within-page link, where none
existed previously.

Furthermore, "rev" is deprecated for use in microformats.
