Nicely timed Toby :)

I have a new test going on my Dev site that does just about what you
suggest and  converts XFN+hCard via XSLT to produce a FoaF file called
for want of a word xFoaF. it Is very much inspired by Dan Connolly's

you can take a peek at http://dev.weborganics.co.uk/ 

example output using http://www.tantek.com/#hcard as the transformation

Foaf explorer View

Validated Triples

The entire source code PHP and XSLT is also available for download on
the dev site.

to answer the question "multiple hCards on a user's profile page - how
can I mark one as the actual user?" I would mark up just one hcard
containing rel="me" which would represent the actual user and the rest
with rel="contact" or whatever XFN value is suitable.
