I don't see how the above would break any existing (or future 
spec-abiding) "geo" or "hCard" implementations; the elevation data and 
geo-route class would simply be discarded.

It seems very unlikely that vcard will change at all; it could well be, 
that if and when it finally does, it needs to follow any future hCard 
developments, because the alter may well have a greater number of 
implementations and published examples.
