I don't see any wording in RFC 2426 (vCard) that prohibits multiple LOGOs or
PHOTOs, therefore it is reasonable to allow for more than one in hCards as

Now, what different clients/applications do with those multiple LOGOs/PHOTOs
is a different matter, but the assumption is that those implementations are
constantly improving.

Your markup should reflect the content you are publishing.  The
implementations will adapt to the content out there, especially if you add
your particular content as one of the "Examples in the Wild" in the hCard
