[uf-discuss] hCard and vCard agents

On another mailing list, someone was asking how best to provide hCards
for a company and its agents without having to replicate the company's
data to each hCard. Of course, one way to achieve this is using the
include-pattern. A better, more consistent (with vCard) way, though,
would be to embed the agents inside the organisation's hCard as nested

As I've kinda hinted, this is achieved in vCard by embedding
sub-vCards as 'agents', as detailed in the vCard profile[1] in §3.5.4.
Is there any issue with including this in hCard (or is it already: I
couldn't see it referenced anywhere on the wiki)?
