I would pick B every time.

At this point, I see no additional gain for the Stakeholders, Web
Developers, Apps, or me.

#this feels....burdensome and adds an additional layer that is actually
outside the Schema.org property's understanding.  And besides, Fragments
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fragment_identifier like what your trying to
reuse, are nice and cool, and those depend on a client to process
them...however they wish....a server does nothing with fragments, last time
I checked the RFC's.

Willing to look at it through your eyes Kingsley, but your going to have to
give us examples that show the benefit that your pitching...even live
working examples with some App or Webpage out there that understands your
ideas and can build relations with them.  Schema.org has to meet the needs
of the plenty...not of the few.

Proof in the pudding big guy ?

(LinkedIn trick...if anyone noticed...do we care?  YES, some of us actually
do, and that's what I am talking about....avoid the confusion...and stop
living the dream that you can "socially communicate" with me on a site like
LinkedIn ... YOU CANNOT...you can only openly communicate with folks on
social sites or through social apps....we need a property that also
supports the Communication idea....not just the Thing idea.)
