Lisa Galarneau is right to point to this presentation by Tantek Çelik (the same person behind microformats.org) about Attention.xml. This is a clear example of what I have been calling 'second party metadata' - the idea here is that the use of a resource is as important, if not more important, as the nature of the resource. From technorati, Çelik tends to favour XHTML rather than, say, RSS, which isn't quite the way I'd go (I'm open to see what develops, though). But the format isn't the main thing; the concept is.
