Life would be better if URI's were used in more places.

I disagree. Employee numbers are used by many many companies. I am
talking about standardizing (in the microformats sense) how HTML is
marked up to indicate that a string on the page is an employee number.
What I do with that string is a specific use case, perhaps.
Employee numbers are "for a specific problem domain" as stated in the
definition of microformats. 
Maybe if there was a standard way to find the employee number, some
generic tools would be developed to do things that use the employee number.
