The issue is whether to do:

	vcard:givenName "Danny J."

... or:

	vcard:givenName "Danny J."
	vcard:givenName "J."

... or:

	vcard:givenName ( "Danny" "J.")

The family, given, additional properties are for pieces of full names. 
Norm restricted cardinality to 1 on these, and so chose the first 
approach. I strongly supported this move.

Two doesn't work.

Garret wants to allow something like the third approach.

This discussion is all about resolving this question.
