Quite preliminary, but still noteworthy. See http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/05/introducing-rich-snippets.html

They are also searching for new  vocabularies and data sources that they can potentially support, I guess they will soon support the popular vocabularies (FOAF, SIOC etc.) that are also supported by Yahoo Search Monkey [1]. Maybe we (the HCLS IG) could come up with a biomedical demo scenario based on RDFa and propose that to Google?
