Comment (by TomasM):

 Microformats creators says this:

 Upgrading to microformats2

 Upgrade sites

 Second, if you publish any kind of semantic information, start upgrading
 your web pages to microformats2 across the board.

 If you’re concerned about what search engines claim to support, there are
 two approaches to choose from:

     Know that search engines are a trailing indicator, and as
 microformats2 usage grows, they’ll index it as well.
     Or: Use one classic microformat (supported by all major search
 engines) at top of your page, e.g. on the <body>, in addition to your
 microformats2 markup throughout your pages. Search engines only really
 care to summarize the primary topic or purpose of a web page in their
 “rich snippets” or “cards”, and thus that’s sufficient.

 Check out the latest validators which now include some microformats2
 support as well!
