schema.org - anything here for us?

David Gerard-2
http://schema.org/

An initiative by Google, Yahoo and Bing to make a tag language to make
things more findable in search engines.

Is there anything in this for us? schema.org tags in templates?
Presumably this would require software work too, and require us to
cross levels between software and content, at least a little ...

It's coded disambiguation. Actually an extension to the English language.

Thanks for raising this, if the main search engines are collaborating
on this together then it will probably work. But it makes me wonder:

Are other sites implementing this?

Am I correct in thinking that implementing this would further our
mission by making relevant parts of our data more likely to appear in
people's searches?

Can we implement this without adding all this code to our data, for
example by using categories etc to create a version that the search
engines see and offering the current version to our editors?

What happens if some Wikipedia editors start including schema tags in
articles? Will it work and if so does MOS need an update?

Can we incorporate Schema into the WYSIWYG upgrade currently being
worked? If we don't, does this have the potential to raise the
barriers against new editors joining us because they find our format
arcane and more difficult than using Word or Facebook?
