Does it make sense to carry through that 'x'?

 I see:

5.2.9. GENDER

   Purpose:  To specify the gender of the object the vCard represents.

   Value type:  A single text value.

   Special notes:  The value "M" stands for male while "F" stands for



FWIW doesn't seem to rule *out* additional values, which makes it 
consistent with the FOAF design (although we use 'male' and 'female' as 
the two most well-known values for foaf:gender). While out of scope for 
this thread, I'm very interested to have collaboration between FOAF and 
Microformat approaches on representing gender; both in the vocabulary 
sense, but also in making nice accessible form controls that allow 
type-in values as well as a constrained list.

Nearby in the Web: https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/vcarddav "This 
list is for discussion of revisions to vCard (RFC 2426) and the cardDAV 
protocol draft-daboo-carddav."
