[wp-hackers] post format types

And we do know we already have lots of ways to implement these 
features.  It's just that now we are going to have to train people by 
saying something like: "When you want the post to look like a status 
update, choose "aside" under "Post Format". If you want it to look like 
a conversation,  choose the "chat" post format instead. If you want it 
to look like a birthday announcement, totally ignore that box and do 
something completely different because this feature is interoperable".

My concern only applies if the code has been written so that core 
changes are required to add and remove from that list. If it is 
pluggable/filterable/actionable or whatever, great! Let the official 
stance of THIS IS THE LIST - be the final word.  As long as it's easy to 
break that rule and we don't have to cross train people, I'm quite 
content. ;)
