Purple Unicorn : No.
Heaven Main Lobby : Yes.
Hypercube: Yes.
Dream character: Yes.

In fact, any fictional or intangible entity can be used as long as the
"fictional or intangible" bit is set. Except unicorns. hCard may not under
any circumstances be used to to represent unicorns, even if the
"fictional or intangible" bit is set to true.

Note that setting the "fictional or intangible" bit incorrectly can have
serious consequences, ref "Thor" or "God of the Old Testament".
