Yup, seems sensible.

That, or other quick hack (perl script etc) seems useful. I think most
tools use foaf:name so breakage shouldn't be too bad, but it'd be a shame
to let folks down who'd taken the time to be an early adopter. By far the
majority of foaf rdf files created by non-members of rdfweb-dev was via
foaf-a-matic, i'm sure, so the format should be pretty regular.
