Indeed. It was suggested that "deceased" be used as a tag in hCards, in
lieu of a date-of-death field.

Suppose Sue publishes a family tree as a series of web pages, one for
each person.

On her own page, she has:

        Title: Sue Smith

        Jane                            Fred

with an hCard for each person. If they tag Fred as "deceased", then
they, too, are shown as deceased. Not good.
