For a vCard, the draft now says an agent is "another person who will act on
behalf of the person or organization."

That's too much authority. To prevent being an unintended grant, either of two
solutions will work:
--- replace "will act" with "may sometimes act"; or
--- add a sentence analogous to that under the property named class regarding
secrecy classification: "This is merely advisory and cannot be considered as
binding for agency."

Thank you.
