I like the updates, but I always wondered why vCard doesn't include a
relation that maps a person/org to their vcards. Or does it and I just don't
see it?

I guess I also don't understand the approach outlined in the comments for
VCard saying that the VCard URI could also be a URI for a person or
organization. What's the point of having the VCard class if anything can
have the dual role of being a vcard? I'd have thought that keeping people
separate from vcards but providing a way of associating a person's vcards to
themselves would result in cleaner ontologies.

Subject: Representing vCard Objects in RDF (W3C Member Submission)

We are pleased to announce that an updated W3C Note for "Representing vCard
Objects in RDF" is now available:


This W3C Member Submission merges the original W3C Note [1] with the later
"An ontology for vCards" [2] to produce a unified approach to RDF vCard

The W3C Team has also produced some comments on the Submission [3].

Cheers...  Renato Iannella (for the Authors)
