‘Heard of’ perhaps not, but it is very, very widely used.

On spitting the spec completely I agree; it isn't really friendly to
anyone wishing to work with both specs. But I think that ‘extensions’
should be very clearly labelled such that it is abundantly clear when
vcard is diverged from. Either through <strong>ly emphasised wording
prefixing each extension (if integrated into the sections also
containing vcard properties), or placed on a separate extensions page.
