Ryan is right, FN is manditory, so it shouldn't be left blank. His way
of condensing the two is probably your best option. There is a
discussion about how to encode companies in vCards, even the RFC spec
does not give an example. (I think) on the hcard-issues pages (or maybe
FAQs) there is a question about this, if not then you should please add
it with your example so the community can try to work-out the best way
to encode it.

--- X2V will not break, it will use the Node value of < ...
class="org">...</..> and in this case, since the <a> node value is the
same as the divs this will be fine. I can't speak for other
implementations, but this is how it should work.
Crap, ryan king just beat me to responding, but i'll send it anyway...
