Hello RDF-ers

I have this vague feeling that we need some kind of messaging mechanism built 
into FOAF.

Consider a scenario where I'm a member of Ecademy and my FOAF data has been 
published to the outside world.  The FOAF file contains my name and my 

It would be very handy for someone else to be able to route a message to me via 
Ecademy.  This would direct people to Ecademy (good for Ecademy) and keep my 
email address private (good for me).

Is there an existing mechanism to handle/support this or should we spin off 
into the world of Web Services at the point?
