Hinted at in the initial resume brainstorming sessions[1], I believe the
idea was that an hCard would be analogous to a business card for each
position that you held in an experience. At the very core, it is used to
markup the "title" for that position and "title" is a vcard field. So in the
spirit of reuse[2], it was logical to use hCard for that purpose.
