OK - a business card has my contact info, as would a vCard:
business "address" and so on
This is the very same address data that is suggested be contained with <address> tag is it not?
Seems like fusing the two, as they are intended to describe the same general types of data (but of course are not literally the same thing), would make sense if I want people to be able to contact me easily.
I have no interest in being novel, just in being practical.
Well, ADDRESS is more like "if you want to contact the author of this document then here's the contact info", or such-likes. ADDRESS as a business card might be appropriate on a portfolio page, for instance, but all business cards are not necessarily contact info for the document.
This is the elastic, hybrid vCard/address I was talking about - it is suited to a portfolio or bio type page.
I added some classes to the vCard "microformat" so to speak - I wonder if that invalidates it - I don't know how strict you need to be with microformats, but judging by the somewhat sloppy code the generators on the microformats site spit out I have to imagine the small additions I made are within the spec. I will read up on it further...

Reason: Fixed code in link a bit
Right - seems like it is more an idea with some suggested code at this point.
Trying to organize the code (and related to our discussion about p tags in forms for organization) got me to thinking about just setting display: block; on spans instead of using p tags in some instances.
Such a fine line as to whether or not the p tag has some semantic value for non-paragraphs and if that is better than a generic span or div (realizing of course block level elements couldn't be enclosed in a span). Hmmm...
