Im not sure yet there are more than a few people already publishing
this way so at the moment I would say that its just best practice or you
could say I am just recognising a design pattern in our own community.

A hFoaF format certainly looks desirable FoaF basically is just a
machine readable homepage so it would seem natural to want to embed FoaF
in html and make it represent an actual homepage too, last time I looked
according to ping the semantic web[1] there are around a million FoaF
documents out there so yes I think this should maybe be a format what do
you think?
