I guess my main question about this is, what benefit exactly does it bring us, or allow us to provide to other people, and how widespread is it really, or is it just another bit of pie in the sky?

I mean I was persuaded to add the current microformat stuff, which as far as I know has never been by anybody for anything. Now we have this RDFa thing (and we all know what a huge success RDF has been...) and researching it I see HTML5 has added a new microformat system in parallel to adding RDFa support (which is a WTF in itself) and somebody will no doubt be trying to add that soon...

On the technical side it mostly appears fine, having plowed through a heap of specs, although I'm still not quite clear if using `xmlns` to specify the prefix is correct, or if we should be using `prefix` instead of, or as well as, `xmlns`.
