Couldn't <a class="uid url"> be your openid page? i.e
http://samksethi.myopenid.com and this page contain my details in hCard?
Thanks in advance

I just thought of another base case in the recursive algorithm
if the uid of the current hcard equals that of the previous, you're done.

I agree, what I'm proposing does less than what you proposed. But, I think

Sure, that would be unfortunate, but with the addition of the second base
case (see above) it would be solved.
