I don't think you mean a microformat.  A microformat is used as part of 
a larger document, and is either something outside the basic syntax, 
e.g. ISO format date strings, or stylised used of the standard syntax.

What you actually want is a lightweight language for the whole document. 
  You seem to think of that as a subset of SVG, but I think it actually 
would need to include structures that are too high level to belong in SVG.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
