Grin. Take heart, I know that there's the beginnings of provision in
LID to serve them in their original form, I'll pester Johannes to make
sure that action=text/x-vcard works.

I'm betting they don't. LID does it through its query mechanism, but
for the most part the "<link rel=..." stuff has semantics that are
waaay too loose for folks to want to adopt until there's a widespread
usage. Chicken, meet egg.
