[Dextrose] [DESIGN] Extending activity microformat spec to include optional olpc_activity_size

I'm in process of developing an updater for sugar that reads urls (for
example [1]) which contain information in a format compliant with the
'activity microformat specification' [2]. While writing the updater
code, I realized that I have to make lots of time and bandwidth
consuming http requests to ascertain activity bundle size; information
that can easily be included in the microformat embedded in the update

Thus, I propose to include an optional 'olpc-activity-size' tag in the
microformat specification, so as to rid the world of extra http
requests. If anyone has any concerns or suggestions, please speak up
