During the opening keynote at the Mix06 conference this past March, Tim O'Reilly engaged Bill Gates in a discussion about microformats. During that conversation, Bill Gates specifically noted that we need microformats for contacts, events, and directions.

http://radar.oreilly.com/archives/2006/03/directions_microformat_leading.html

The first of those two have been well defined by hCard and hCalendar microformats. However, a directions microformat has yet to be defined. Research has begun towards the development of a directions microformat.
