Perhaps it would help if you add a link to the existing spec there,
so people can see the bigger picture. A short friendly URL is 
  
   http://webid.info/spec

As a matter of interest, since we have a bit of your time here, I had
a few questions:

 - Is it possible for micro data and micro formats to co-exist easily 
in one page? I mean so that a parser can know not to mix up tags from one
or the other. 
 - Similar question with RDFa
 - I had heard that it was very difficult to find consistent parsers for 
microformats, that different parsers could end up giving different interpretations 
for the same markup. Are the semantics of micro formats consistently defined across 
web sites? How can one set up a test suite for this?
