[uf-dev] hCard label type

The vCard spec allows types (e.g. "home", "postal", etc) to be specified
for the LABEL property, but the hCard spec doesn't seem to allow this. The
hCard examples page on the wiki (RFC 2426 examples) does include a label
marked up with type+value, but that page is not considered normative.

Is this an oversight in the spec, or was a conscious decision made not to
allow types to be specified within labels? If the latter, what was the

Do any current parsers extend hCard and allow a type to be specified for
labels? (I'm considering adding this feature to Cognition.)
