No, it was clear. However, when I read the ticket, my first thought
was, "That would be ideal for a josm plugin, and I don't see why
anyone would propose it for core josm rather than a plugin." I didn't
want to say it out loud and pre-empt decisions of actual josm
I know how those microformats work but I don't feel that they're very
common, so I don't have any particular problem with the reason given.
Do you feel to the contrary, that they are "used much"? Do many
business/organisation websites actually add these things?
