Hi all,
> The current vCard-in-RDF seems to do vCard v3 [1]; it contains a note that anticipates the new vCard v4 aka RFC 6350 [2].

To exploit the deployed basis, a v3-based approach seems more sensible, 
however, a more future-oriented take would be to base it on v4 of vCard. 
Note that there seem to be compatibility  issues between v3 and v4 as 
found in, for example [3].

We (I mean the chairs ) can maybe ask to the creators of the rdf version 
(Renato Iannella et al.) if they are planning to upgrade their current 
version of V3.
If not, we can either propose an hybrid version of vcard based on V3, 
without using all the features of V4, with only core elements useful for 
our use cases.
