The proposal is to change that, so that hCard /uses/ a 1:1
representation of vCard, but can have additional properties (well, this

No, but that's no matter; If you wish to export an hCard with a death
date, as a vCard, then you just drop the date of death (or, if you
prefer, record it as a note).

That's unstructured data, and thus unsemantic.
