Hi all,

This seems to have gotten lost in all the talk of vCard...

This seems to be present but commented out in the RDF...

I support extending the domain of foaf:img  to foaf:Agents, and suggest
it may even be desirable to cast the domain even wider. It's possible to
have a representative image of (almost) anything, for example, buildings
and mugs, as well as more ethereal concepts such as solace and anger.
The latter cases may be a little contentious, but inanimate objects can
certainly be represented by an image.
