Nothing tangible. It would serve my main use case of allowing <article>s
by respected authors to be rendered before other <article>s or otherwise
style them. I believe semantically stating authorship to be useful e.g.
for searching a collection of documents for articles by a specific author,
or conversely, blacklisting. Also, hCard fn allows for abbreviation of
names I would find handy when screen space is scarce. But I guess those
are less important than the first one.
