More themes included/microformats

What is the interest level in including more (fixed) themes in the basic
typo install than just Azure? Scribbish [1] is technically very good,
with the microformats [2] built-in, but I have personally fallen in love
with Lucid [3]. I am working on altering Lucid to use microformats as I
believe they are a “good thing” and would make a great selling point to
have Typo themes use them by default. hAtom seems to be the most
obvious one for blog content, but I think others could be implemented in
Typo as well.

Anyone read the Developerworks article on microformat useage that was
posted on slashdot yesterday? [4]

There are a few microformat-ish things that I’d like to do after 4.0
ships. I’d like to make it easy to create hReviews as well as one of
the event microformats. Beyond that, I haven’t seen anything
particularly exciting in the microformat world. hAtom sounds nice
enough as a formatting standard, and Scribbish is already in the trunk
and will be included in 4.0.

Past that, are any of the remaining microformats actually useful for
anything?

I like Lucid as well but don’t think it should be bundled until the IE
bugs
are fixed. I see a lot of IE problems with my own tests and at
http://www.thelucid.com. The default view and all the DHTML controls in
the
upper right give me problems in IE. Perhaps offering to include it if
the
bugs are fixed can generate some interest?

OTOH, the DHTML effects for Origami, Phokus and Modernist all work for
me in
IE.
