Is UID intended to be more general than indicating "more authoritative 
hCard"?  Or do you mean that the overall concept is similar, not 
necessarily that rel="uid url" is a solution?  I'm thinking here of 
cases where the target may be an OpenID, but not necessarily provide an 
hCard.  An example of this might be href="xri://=john.panzer"[1].
