[uf-discuss] Issue with "fn org" when also organization unit

I'd like to mark up an organization where both the -name and -unit are
specified. I also want this to be an organization hCard.

I'm having trouble finding an adequate way to express this, as an
hCard with both the Organization Contact Info rule [1] and the Org
Optimization [2] seem to implicitly disallow having an

I.e. this is my company (ignoring the fn issue):

<span class="org">
 <span class="organization-name">ABC, Inc.</span>,
 <span class="organization-unit">North American Division</span>

To make it an organization hCard, I need somehow to have org == fn,
while still independently expressing the -unit. Something like this

<span class="org fn organization-name">ABC, Inc.</span>,
<span class="org">
 <span class="organization-unit">North American Division</span>

... which strikes me as inadequate. Thoughts?

Regards, etc...
