Toby, this too is a good answer that should be in the hCard FAQ (if it isn't already).

Subject: [uf-discuss] Indicate order of sub-properties

In some cultures (e.g. China), full names are written in family-name  
given-name order, whereas in others (e.g. Western Europe), given-name  
family-name is used. So you might think it would be nice if we had a  
way to indicate the order of properties within "n", but in actual  
fact, we don't need it - "fn" provides us with the name with all its  
parts in the correct order.

Similarly, "label" provides a fully-formatted address, with all its  
components in the right order.
