The problem with this markup is that vCard requires a name at the very
least, so this would work as a minimum.

Yeah - it will be nice to see flickr using microformats, and infact,
would solve my previous statement as the name field could be filled as
all photos on flickr are marked with an author.  Although I assume the
geo would be for the location of the photograph, rather than the
location of the photographer!
