I don't disagree that groups/bands should be considered organisations.

That said, I don't think the reason offered here is a strong one. The 
issue described is directly related to FN's (over?)reuse beyond its 
original vCard scope of person names, to cover any name.

[Not only has this led to the fn/title debate, but it seems some 
implementors are confused between following the vCard semantics (FN only 
for person names) or the hCard ones (FN for any name). See. 
http://cinematreasures.org/theater/365/, which uses an empty FN, 
resulting in their vCard not being detected by Operator, only the address]
