O.k. thanks, I understand. And with that made clear I respectfully
disagree:-) Any work on RDF 2.0, as you call it, is bound to be
non-that-easy and, consequently, longer. I would _not_ want to see the
RDF vCard effort to advance in parallel with a new version of RDF. I am
not saying such an RDF 2.0 work might not come at some point in the
future, but I would definitely prefer to decouple vCard from it...

B.t.w., I did not see anything in the discussions on vCard until now
that would warrant any change on the RDF model...
