Never a problem.

It actually makes me wonder whether a  element geo will ever exist by  
itself, unattached from an hCard? Indeed, the same might go for adrs.

This issue has come up in putting together presentations and so on on  
ufs. I am trying to build a progression from rel and rev ufs to adr  
and geo, then hCard and so on introducing ideas and concepts along  
the way.

The problem is, finding use cases for say geo and adr unassociated  
with an hCard.

anyone got any suggestions?
