Oops, that was the wrong way around. I meant that if a letter links  
to the NMM biography, with rel="creator" on that link, and the NMM  
bio then links to wikipedia, with rel="me", then a microformats  
spider should be able to infer that the wikipedia page describes the  
author of the letter by following the chain of links and looking at  
the rel attributes.
