I just want to run this idea past the list of a rule similar to the
"fn org" rule [1] for indicating that a hCard is about a place: "fn
extended-address". Although extended-address is a pretty loose field,
I've found myself falling into this pattern when I've been trying to
encode a place.

For example, we could encode [2] as:

<div class="vcard">
<div class="fn extended-address">Wrigley Field</div>
<div class="street-address">1060 W Addison St</div>
<span class="locality">Chicago</span>, <span class="region">IL</span>
<span class="postal-code">60613</span>

Regards, etc...
