Hi Chris,

Hmm. I'm not sure if I understand your solution.  To avoid  
corruption, I'm pretty sure AddressBook doesn't want people writing  
directly to its private data store (regardless of format), so there  
needs to be some API.

Now, the idea of an "hCard" API for data access is interesting (and  
perhaps RESTful :-), but a simpler solution would arguably be to  
reuse a format they already have in common, like LDAP.  Wouldn't it?
