Yes; greater granularity is good.

Consider hCalendars, with class="location vcard" for the event's venue.
It's the job of parsers to distinguish between such hCards, and, say,

        class="attendee vcard"

        class="organizer vcard"

(I note that "attendee", "contact" and "organizer" are listed in the
hCalendar spec, but not the cheat-sheet. Do any current parsers
recognise them? Should we also have a "speaker" or similar class?
