Hi Roger

If you interested in this area, the ufxtract parser I built directly
uses the design patterns you have been talking about to extract
social network date. 

It spiders sites following rel=me
Parsers the xfn/hCard pattern
Finds Representative hCard

There is an API you can use http://lab.backnetwork.com/ufXtract-psn/.
have also created a demo web interface to show how the JSON can be used

I wrote a small blog post "Making your social networking data portable"
that may interest you. Also on my blog is the presentation I gave at
Semantic Camp London which covers the more complex issues of extracting
data from portable social networks. http://www.glennjones.net/
