Well, this is what we are getting now with a lot of automatically
generated hcards, too. This is the other side of development where we
need to improve: simply converting an hcard to vcard via XSLT is not
enough, the conversion script needs to be clever enough to validate if
there is at least a url, phone number or email before converting it to
vcard or throw a message that there is not enough data to convert this
into a meaningful vcard.
