I suggest dcterms:abstract would be more appropriate.

I'd suggest using using your preference of foaf:firstName,
foaf:givenname, and / or foaf:surname rather than vcard. for more detail (don't be discouraged by
the 'testing' status of some of these terms...)

Alf, What are you thoughts on giving URIs to people?

I'd suggest not using properties with no value.

+1 :)

Matthew, is the profile that Alf has created for hubmed satisfy your
requirements? To the extent you both reuse these constructs people /
applications, etc. benefit.
