Personally, I like microformats the best, because they're simple, straight forward, associating them with a scheme is recommended, but AFAIK it's optional, and they serve a nice double purpose for me because I use quite a bit of CSS and the elements I use them on usually have a style associated with them, so I use the microformats classes to do the styling of the elements as well as the defining for machine readers...

IDK if they're all treated the same, because I've only used microformatting, because it was the one I thought would be easiest to implement and work the best for what I needed.
