--- wouldn't you just keep a list of the pages you have already
 crawled? So if you find a tagcloud on page /item1.html and it links to
 /tags/tag1 then on page item2.htm you re-find the tag cloud which
 links to /tags/tag1 you don't follow it again?

--- probably out of side of the spec, but certainly a best-practices
 should cover these sorts of issues.

There was discussion about canonical hCards 2 years ago

 I am not sure how helpful any of that discussion was/is to this problem.
