Right. That's precisely why microformats and Greasemonkey scripts have 
become so popular -- people don't need to wait for a spec to arrive, 
they can just go ahead and do it.

That being said, microformats have lots of problems related to defining 
a strict parsing model and disambiguation, so a more systematic approach 
might be very helpful.

Best regards, Julian
