But, the CV does have a 'contact':

   address + hCard

though, not necessarily a class="contact".

instance, the field details doesn't mention class="contact" and neither
does the Contact example.

Representative hCard may be sufficient for hresume contact (updated:

Thanks for the heads-up. Updated.

I was referring to your NLP function.

Presenting additional data outside of structured data is probably a plus
given that structured data has a higher priority. I'm sure there are
different view camps about this but worth to test, at least in this
specific case =)
