To further muddy the water, is it wise to start adding @rel="me" to
indicate authoritative hCards?

If I have a list of employees (please forgive any markup errors):

<div class="vcard">
  <a href="/users/john" rel="me self" class="url fn">John Doe</a>
<div class="vcard">
  <a href="/users/jane" rel="me self" class="url">Jane Doe</a>

Then an XFN parser will surely interpret that the 'me' on the linked
pages is the same as the 'me' of the current page?
