FYI...

"A week or so ago, I started working with the X2V code,
which works great but has a lot of redundancy. In order
to have some confidence that I wouldn't break it, I
developed a test case for each piece of the code that
I touched. ..."
hcardTest materials, XHTML version of RFC2426, and fun with microformats
http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-dev/2005-July/000010.html

One of the reasons I started hacking on xhtml2vcard.xsl was
to adapt it to produce RDF output. I haven't done that
yet.

But once that's done, all we'd need is an XMDP profile for
hCard, which the microformats folks seem to agree is in order...

[[
Would it be more in the spirit of HTML to define these classes in a
metadata
profile (http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/global.html#h-7.4.4.3), so
that "User agents may... perform some activity based on known
conventions for that profile"? Should this be a part of microformats
specifications in general? (If not, why not?) 
              * ACCEPTED. Yes, all microformats that introduce new
                classnames SHOULD include an XMDP
                (http://gmpg.org/xmdp/) profile (which itself is a
                microformat for defining HTML metadata profiles) that
                defines those classnames.
