I like principle  "use visible metadata as opposed to invisible
metadata".
Please connect it back with the concrete example of microformats
--- and possibly add an additional related principle:

Give authors something in return for encoding semantics.

So: author gives you semantics, you give him some default styling
in return; consequence -- authors who want the styling give you
semantics.
