I'm curious where these microformat guys get off absconding with fairly 
standard class names for use in their microformats.  "decription"? 
"entry"?  "content"?  They seem pretty common to many purposes.

I'm not thoroughly versed in the use of microformats, but it seems this 
could lead to a lot of false positives in a search.  If someone pointed 
a microformat scanner at a default Kubrick blog, for example, it might 
come back with false positives.

So educate me- What does the microformat syntax provide to prevent this 
from happening?  After all, my use of "description" as a CSS class name 
predates any microformat.
