--- yes, if you are trying to list all the URLs that are about an
hCard then it would make sense to add the class="url" as well. vCard
does not distinguishes between URL TYPES, so the fact that this is an
RSS feed is not taken into account - for the purpose of vCard it is
JUST a url, that URL might point to an HTML, a GIF, an EXE, or an XML
file - vCard doesn't care. This certainly does not stop you from
adding more semantics in the form of @type data and/or other class
values, "rss|feed|atom|syncation|etc" there is nothing preventing you
from doing so.
