[uf-discuss] Sanity check on hCard usage

I have a use case for displaying lists of people (readers of a blog) 
which seems reasonable to mark up using XOXO and hCard.  However, in at 
least some of the cases the only piece of information I have about a 
user is their login ID, which is an AOL/AIM 'screen name'.  Is this a 
reasonable minimal hCard markup for these cases?

<li class="vcard"><span class="nickname">ChattingChuck</span></li>

Two questions here: (1) is "nickname" the right way to say this and (2) 
is this sufficient to be a reasonable if minimal hCard?
