Brian,

Yup, this is something I found as well sort of funny. My approach was to
simply come up with such a prop ov:businessCard [1] as I wanted to use it in
my FOAF file [2] ... surely with the hope that it gets picked up by some
'official' standard ;)

Luckily, back then I picked the right namespace for the range of
ov:businessCard, so I guess it's safe to use it.

Cheers,
      Michael
