One thing I've always thought interesting: vCard has a built in
the X- properties. If hCard is to be a 1:1 representation of vCard,
should we have
mechanism whereby hcard extensions would be vcard extensions as well?
My first thought on this would be that any unknown property could be
appended as a
vCard extension, using the standard methods of determining element
<span class="fn">Ryan Cannon</span>
<a class="aim url" href="aim:goim?screenname=AOLUser">AOLUser</a>
I'm not sure what the implications would be of having an absurd
number of other properties
included within an hCard, but something like this would do two things:
1. It would allow us to extend hCard without breaking compatibility
2. It would authors to create compatibility with more specific
Apple's Address book in this case).
Good idea? Bad?
