(Please note, I'm just thinking aloud here)

Since this is mostly text, authors can at least specify font, color,  
background, margin etc. for the entire block. This implies reduced  
layout flexibility compared to e.g. the hCalendar and hCard  
standards, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It means, for  
instance, that users can have calendar info, contact info etc.  
presented in a uniform way across sites, according to their own  
formatting preferences. This would improve accessibility, I think.

To increase flexibility, we can even use some predefined class names  
to style the interior in detail.
