I think marking up all people and companies with hcard makes sense,  
but there's an issue with redundant role information.  Unless the  
include pattern[1] is used here, the citation would read like "John  
Green, editor; Simon Brown, editor", because each editor would need a  
separate "editor" role. But leaving "editors" around each editor  
means that any existing hcard parser would lose role information.
