Ah, I simply assumed these were two competing approaches. Does this mean
Microdata has no community behind it to work on vocabulary?
In any case, I think the Person object defined by data-vocabulary.org should
work for my purposes. But, if I feel the need to invent something new, I can
propose it to the Microformats community first if that's the right process. I
am quite new to these communities.
