The question is though, will Search Monkey, Sindice, et al make use of
these mappings, and offer support for other tagging vocabs?

Another, unrelated, point: it's probably a bad idea for the
specification to recommend using the "/>" syntax with the <span>
element. Yes, it's syntactically legal, but it breaks XHTML 1.0 Appendix
C guidelines, and will cause headaches for authors who aren't sending
their pages as application/xhtml+xml.

Oh, one more... it would be nice if the spec had an example of using
ctag:label and ctag:taggingDate on the same tag. Sure *I* know how, but
I'm pretty sure that most of the people the spec is targeted at will get
the answer seriously wrong if they had to guess using the existing
examples as a guideline.
