Thanks for pointing that out.
I second Andy Mabbet's concern about allowing multiple instances for 
fields like e.g. country not making sense. But if this is what was 
agreed upon, let's stick to it.

Some more questions:
In one of my earlier drafts for this diagram, I had implemented 
givenName and familyName as multiple. I am not sure why I did this and 
cannot find proper reference in the RFC. Can these be multiple?

Can geo be multiple? It is listed with the singular properties, but if 
geo is meant to reference a place, shouldn't geo be part of the Address 
it references? It's probably more of a vCard to hCard to jCard legacy 
problem, but any opinions on that?

I have updated the diagram. In case anyone wants to edit in on their 
own, there is also a zip file that contains the diagram in dia, svg and 
visio format.
