Hi Lorenzo,

There has already been some work done on groups... and I'd caution
against suggesting such far-reaching changes off the bat to a core
microformat. It's a sure way to give yourself away! ;)


Also, feel free to use the markup you proposed on your projects -- but
it's unlikely that, at this point, with implementations
(http://microformats.org/wiki/implementations) from folks like Yahoo!,
Flickr and LinkedIn -- that hcard is going to go through any drastic
changes any time soon. Especially when it's built on the international
vcard standard.

Additionally, familiarize yourself with the process page as it's a
good place to discover more about how microformats are pounded into
