Is the idea here to tie authority to a particular attribute set within a
vCard?  Your issue is what to use as a distinguished name in some way
that is at all verifiable.  Can you get a bit more specific about your
use case?  As you mentioned, this can get quite messy.  I'm also aware
that somewhere along the way you're probably going to have to
canonicalize the information because vCards don't maintain ordering...
