 Formats is a good name for it, mode would have been weird.

 I think accounting for specific queries for posts in a format is
 important. My main site would probably use this for our "updates" (asides)
 but we show updates in the sidebar instead of the main content sometimes.
 Having them all as one post type is nice since we could merge them back
 together easily. Separating them visually means that e.g. On category
 pages we would be running a query for posts of x format that are also in y
 category, which gets expensive quickly. Currently we do this with a
 double-join on two categories (one for format one for actual topical
 category) so this new system should be at least as fast as that (which
 isn't very fast anyway).
