A cool implementation of this would be a form that optionally accepts
the URL for an hCard and auto-fills the data by making an AJAX request
to the entered page and transforming it with X2V.

Of course this wouldn't require hCard markup in the forms, but you
could build a slick library out of it.

Once created, this could be some cool leverage for social networking
sites to implement hCard—it gives their users more added value for
having a profile.
