<http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard#Organization_Contact_Info> covers
the issue of how to use an hCard to represent an organization:.

Some questions for Roger:
* Did you see this resource?
* If you hadn't seen it, if you had seen it, would it still have been
unclear how to mark up for an organization?
* If you did see it, was there anything in particular that was ambiguous?
* Any suggestions on making the resource mentioned a bit more salient?
(easier to find, easier to read?)
