It's not new. I know that Chris Messina and some other folks have  
been talking about building a similar service, called rhyzomatic.com  
for awhile. I'm not sure if there's been much progress there, though.

I'm not going to respond to your individual points (not because they  
aren't good, I just have a simpler answer), but instead just say,  
"start building it with the microformats we have available." So, use  
hcard + xfn + xfolk to build what you can. THEN, we can see what's  
missing. I suspect, however, that you can get the majority of your  
functionality with those formats.
