There is more documentation than you suggest. See [1], which  
documents how to parse hcards. Much of the hCard parsing guideline  
apply more generally (extracting those common bits is on my todo list).

Also, please note that we have a suite of test cases. The stable and  
agreed upon ones are here [2] and you can see work in progress in our  
mercurial repository [3].
