I was using that as an example. I was just reiterating Andy's point that 
this is something different which needs to be identified, a user needs 
to understand that the website has to support a standard that matches 
what their software is looking for. Otherwise it doesn't work. This can 
then help drive the uptake of MF since clients and managers will want to 
know why they can't use their "add to address book" button on their own 
site, this is where the name is important.
