I have no objections to this. It's a useful extension to hCard as a
‘profile’ format; which it is very much being used for on the web.
I would be prepared to have ‘hCard profile extensions’ separated from
hCard, though. There's value in the hCard spec being 1:1 with vcard,
especially with regards compatibility with desktop tools.
Although this particular extension wouldn't have a major impact on
that use, if we're to open the can of adding new fields, I'd like it
considered that we clearly separate it, perhaps into a separate
specification, citing hCard as the base and then fully specifying
That way it remains valid to implement hCard for the purposes of just
representing vCard on the web, and more suitable implementations
could embrace these extensions as well.
Does anyone agree?
