But do you need related hCards other than authoritative hCards?  Are  
you identifying any relationships that are not derivative- 
authoritative (e.g fragment-full) hCard relationships?  If so, what  
are the other relationships?

I don't think anyone is really questioning the need for  
relationships.  The question is whether relationships in *general*  
have any value outside of the *specific* authoritative relationships  
in the use case that began this thread.  We're trying to avoid  
boiling the ocean just to get some tea.  If we can restrict the  
problem to a very specific type of relationship and still cover 80%  
of use cases, we should do that.
