Would this method effect hCards that have been intentionally hidden?
On my homepage, I have hidden hCards in my footers, which I'm sort of
currently using as a kind of digital signature, as I'm not ready to
display them (waiting for when I get around to a redesign).   I know
I'm not the only one who hides information.

Also, I recently implemented a hCard on a clients page.  They only
wanted to visually show the company name on the page, but I chose to
also hide the actual owners name in the card - so that when extracted,
it would have a valid contact fn aswell.  This would also be a
problem, I assume?

I may be grabbing the wrong end of the stick, mind you.
