Apologies Bud, didn't mean to downplay the significance of the issue, however my comment was more noting the # of microformat data publishers, rather than # of indexers.

While I agree Technorati and others are already making use of the data available out there, the limited # of data publishers (currently) makes it a little less useful at the moment.

However, i'd certainly bet that as more people & publishers adopt the standard it will blossom. And in fact, we'd like to be a part of that revolution.

May a thousand microformats bloom... :)

I think we have more than theory here. Look at the technorati results all of which derive from the reltag microformat. I give a summary here. The bottom line is that microformats are affecting search visibility now because they tie into existing web infrastructure.
