I think I agree with Andy on this, but I'm finding it difficult to  
read past what appears to me to be unhelpful hostility.

People change names, but hCard doesn't account for this.  Publishers  
are expected to update their hCards when names change, or have  
invalid hCards, because name changes are an edge case that shouldn't  
inconvenience publishers in general by making the microformat less  
clear.  Are species name changes any different?
