I think that maybe all artist kan be considered a company because 
frankly their names are trademarks no matter if their own, a bands or 
something else.
Britney Spears or Paris Hilton could both practically be caled Britney 
Spears Inc. or Paris Hilton Inc.
It's better with broken microformats than no - but perhaps it's better 
broken the way I suggest than the way it is now?
