In Swignition I implemented a handful of X-* properties, though this was
a list of additional properties recognised by the parser rather than
just allowing the page to specify arbitrary classes beginning with "x-".

<span class="category">Salary - €50000</span>
<span class="category">Shoe Size - 10.5</span>

foreach ($vcard.category as $category)
if ($category.matches(/ - /))
