Does this mean you support a wider set of classes as the domain for 
vcard:adr? So the following is RDFa would be correct from Yahoo's 

<div typeof="gr:BusinessEntity" about="#company">
    <span property="gr:legalName" datatype="xsd:string">Electronics 
    <span property="rdfs:comment" datatype="xsd:string">Electronics Ltd. 
was established in 1960 and is UK's largest manufacturer of TV sets.</span>
    <a rel="rdfs:seeAlso" href="http://www.electronics.com"/>
    <a rel="rdfs:seeAlso" href="http://www.electronics.com/shop/"/>
    <div rel="vcard:adr">
        <div typeof="vcard:Address" about="#address-office">
            <span property="vcard:street-address">Penny Lane 1233</span>
            <span property="vcard:locality">London</span>
            <span property="vcard:region">London City</span>
            <span property="vcard:postal-code">123 ABC</span>
            <span property="vcard:country-name">United Kingdom</span>
            <a rel="vcard:email" href="mailto:info@electronics.com"/>
            <a rel="vcard:tel" href="tel:+44-1234-1234"/>
            <a rel="vcard:url" href="http://www.electronics.com"/>
