--- i think you are pretty close, here is how the apple address book exports it:
FN:FooBar Ltd
ORG:FooBar Ltd;

So the FN == ORG, but they also put a proprietary X-ABShowAs which is
not part of the vCard spec. Can anyone else confirm how Outlook or
other PIMs would import/export similar situations?
