Now I'm confused. Is it allowed even if the same hCard does not  
contain an explicit n or explicit name part tokens? Where is it  
specified that more than 2 tokens in an fn are allowed?

I'm not objecting. fn with more than 2 token is what I was asking  
for. I just don't see spec text allowing it.
