without touching on the core issues [way to early to think my way  
through the docs] looking at the page, though sparse, it does strike  
me that you are already posting URL, nick and potentially logo/photo  
[if you consider it such] in the following markup:

<h1><a href="http://adactio.com/" accesskey="1" title="Home (access  
key: 1)"><img src="images/logo.gif" alt="adactio" /></a></h1>

i'll leave you to decide how to best turn that into a vcard that that  
can be associated with the hatom feed [but expanding the scope of the  
hatom root node would avoid need for some things like use of the  
nearest in parent fallback.
