I've lost track of who is behind what here, but looking at above URL I see

  xmlns:ns="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/"

...

Besides FOAF Person, gender, img, which are all fine, I see a 
foaf:religion unknown or proposed property:

		<ns:religion>Roman Catholic</ns:religion>

...this isn't in the spec, but I'd consider it for sure if it's proposed 
on foaf-dev.


Also an rdf syntax issue:
		<ns:homepage>http://www.house.gov/pelosi</ns:homepage>
should be...
	<ns:homepage rdf:resource="http://www.house.gov/pelosi"/>

cheers,

Dan
