As I understand Ian is what you do with a media type up the the  
implementation. From what I heard microformats have some formal  
definition on what is expected when you see a particular class name  
while a particular URI is inside the profile attribute of the head  
element. I'm not really sure why you're making this comparison either.

Highlighting omissions or errors for example...

It's not about enforcing or preventing submission at all. It's about  
aiding users. As far as I understand that's what the inline spell  
checking is for.
