--- i´m not sure how you came to that conclusion? certainly
aggregators would mark that the page is "about" the term "deceased"
but it wouldn´t make an assumption about individual hCards? and
depending on the mark-up if Sue is NOT nested inside Fred´s hCard,
then there is a distinction between where/what/who the rel-tag is

We are dabbling in theoretical territory, do you have a page that has
been marked-up somewhere and that page is being misinterpreted by
aggregators and parsers? if so please let us know so we can help
diagnose the problem.
