 > Ah. I can see Andrew's point. I can see the benefit of standardization -
 it allows easy portability between themes that support the feature.

 Making it extensible really diminishes the benefits of standardization.

 > I know I could roll my own and make this a custom taxonomy but it stings
 to do that when the post-format feature is already so perfect for the
 situation. The UI is already there and I already started selecting formats
 for posts.

 Is this really a problem?  Doesn't a custom taxonomy not also provide a
 UI? Can't you transition from formats to the custom taxonomy?
