I definitely like this idea. However, after looking at all the resume  
examples I'd collected, I realized that a good deal of them don't  
have URLs (even from the geeks), so I'm going to go with the org  
hcard approach for now.

Eh, I don't think we can do that, for a couple of reasons:

1. Currently XFN consumers don't have to know about hCard, and do  
accept your proposal would add a dependency there.
2. Current XFN practice uses URLs as identifiers, this would be  
3. Third-party assertions (ie, A says "B and C are friends") aren't  
very trustable (why in the world did FOAF allow it?), so I'm not sure  
its worth our time.
