For what it's worth, Cognition has successfully parsed agents since the 
first alpha release. It supports agents as an embedded vCard:

	<div class="agent vcard">
		<span class="fn">John Citizen</span>

or as a plain string:

	<div class="agent">John Citizen</div>

Cognition can be used as a command-line tool, through its web interface 
at <http://srv.buzzword.org.uk/> or as a Perl module.

An example hCard which includes a couple of agents -- one of each form --
is at <http://examples.tobyinkster.co.uk/hcard>.
