It is possible that with the proliferation of hCards that search indexes 
like Google will take special care when parsing these.  For instance, 
knowing that this blog contains information about a person named "Valerie 
Plame" that works for the "CIA" offers much more context than simply knowing 
that "valerie, plame, and cia" all occur on a page.

Useful right now?  No.  Useful in the future?  Possibly.  Harmful? No.
