I thought Ryan already answer that:

So as I understand that, the rules for getting the most authoritative  
hCard for a given URL are:

1) parse hCard at current URL
2) If the hCard includes <a class="uid url">, load the URL in the  
href, and return to step 1.

When the consumer gets to http://theryanking.com/blog/contact/#vcard  
and finds no <a class="uid url">, it stops there and that's his  
authoritative hCard.
