Something like that is the ultimate goal of CC. That is also the reason
that CC is one of the biggest proponent of RDFa, and that CC's Ben Adida

[PW] So, why don't I get David to create a label (or more) for CC and

hitting them? 

Please feel free to drop a comment on the blog post as others will see it -
including advocates of Microformats and SIOC. John Breslin is going to talk
to someone at DERI.
