Thanks for replying, Ryan.  That's exactly what I suspected had  
occurred and is completely reasonable.

Would you mind sharing your thoughts on formatting records like "I <? 
 >met <hcard>Ryan</hcard> today for lunch at <hreview>The Pink Door</ 
hreview></?>"?  It looks like if I want to live in the uf ecosystem I  
need to use hcalendar's vevent; but that feels like an abuse of that  
spec, since it would be inappropriate in iCalendar.

Perhaps I'm showing my age by taking an RFC too seriously.
