The PERSON element makes a lot of sense. Has it been suggested before? As 
Rob suggested, there would be many very useful attrubutes that the PERSON 
element could have. A link to the persons homepage, email, directory 
information, perhaps even picture.

Most likely the UA would not even display the element differently, but it 
would provide a lot of useful logical information.
