[uf-discuss] "type" subproperty in the hCard logo property?

from RFC 2426 3.5.3 LOGO Type Definition:

Type special notes: The type can include the type parameter "TYPE" to
   specify the graphic image format type. The TYPE parameter values MUST
   be one of the IANA registered image formats or a non-standard image

because the <img> element doesn't really allow you to nest child
elements, and since the type attribute is really on available on the
'a' element. There is no way to really encode the value. I'm not sure
exact what purpose it serves in a vCard application anyway.

(i think) X2V will automatically extract the TYPE property from the
@src string if possible.

Do you have an example of a place you think you NEED a type defined on an image?
