It's an interesting idea,
although to some degree it's once again postponing the necessary IMO
work of putting licenses in the database. I mean, Commons regards
correct licensing as one of the most important activities, and yet
licenses aren't a real object in the system. It's very difficult to
gather even basic information about how licenses are used on Commons.
Anyway as far as I can tell, microformats are dead. However, HTML5
microdata is on its way.
A Google employee wrote that spec, but that's not a guarantee it will
actually work with anything, or that Google Image Search has any idea he
wrote it. ;)
