I object most strongly to this; for all the reasons given in previous
discussions.

hCard currently uses LABEL for non-granular addresses. How will they
be catered for if this change occurs?
Is hCard perhaps in error in its current behaviour?

For issues around plain text values for these items, see:

    http://www.sarahmei.com/blog/2010/11/26/disalienation/

What use is SEX="Ada Lovelace"?

It does *not* make the parameter useless, it makes it extendable.

It is not clear from the wording of the proposed resolution that the
new parameter will be kept. Is that the case?

Why upper-case? [Genuine question;  not meaning to challenge]
