We tried to resolve this while implementing hCard in our phonebook,
but sadly to no avail. The limitation being in vCard, there's not a
lot we can do in hCard without breaking the standard.

I agree with Tantek that defining profile vs. blog probably gets a bit
too specific, but a broad distinction between work and personal would
be good.

The overall pattern is a bit like phone numbers. I was surprised that
you couldn't re-use the home/work phone number typing to make that
same broad distinction between work and personal URLs.

The same work/personal distinction would be good for IM usernames too.
