The implied "nickname" optimization proposal as documented on
hcard-brainstorming, and +1'd by various folks with no objections, has been
accepted and added to hCard.


In short, you can now markup even smaller hCards like:

<span class="vcard"><span class="fn">tantekc</span></span>

as you might see for the "author" on a blog, or username on a reviews site

In the process I cleaned up and clarified the "implied" optimizations in
general in hCard and hopefully made them easier to

Please follow-up with any questions or issues.

I've pinged Brian Suda as well, and I hear X2V will be updated shortly to
support the implied "nickname" optimization.
