Some thoughts...

Why not to split hcard in two formats: person and group?
"Person" describes a physical person, like me, you or Dante Alighieri.
"Group" describes a group of persons, organized in companies,
associations, teams etc. and its a container of persons.

<div class="group">
 <h1 class="name">Microformats</h1>
<p><a href="mailto:microformats-discuss at microformats.org">
  <li class="person"><span class="fn n">Tantek Çelik</span></li>
  <li class="person"><span class="fn n">Lorenzo De Tomasi</span>,
<span class="role">information designer</span></li>
  <li class="person"><span class="fn n">…</span></li>

"Resource" describes a work, like a book, a web site, an article etc.

<p class="resource"><span class="author group name">Microformats
team</span>, <em>hCard specification</span></p>

and can be useful also for bibliographies [look at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BibTeX ]:

<h3>Published resources</h3>
 <li><span class="author fn n">Lorenzo De Tomasi</span> e <span
class="author fn n">Katia Cassese</span>, <em class="title">Come
