If I understand the spec correctly, since a rel="me" is symmetric,
shouldn't the hCard you're pointing to also be pointing back? If
that's true, then the authoritative hCard will quickly get
unmanageable since it will contain tens if not hundreds of reciprocal
links to partial hCards (imagine if you're listed in several different
locale directories marked up with hCard).
