GRDDL requires profile pages to specify how to process pages to obtain the 
actual data, in a computer-readable manner. Few (if any) profile pages for 
widely used profiles actually do this. (I have seen people go so far as to 
suggest using custom profile pages that _do_ include this information 
instead of using the correct profile="" page precisely because of this.)

community any more than you.
