This puzzles me. Microformats are about paving existing cowpaths. I
presume the authors of XFN saw a clear cowpath for not only "contact"
and "me", but for all the other XFN values, such as "friend",
"co-worker", "muse", etc. Has the cowpath for these later values
disappeared, and thus are no longer needed?
