I completely agree, which is why I authored XEP-0292.

IMHO it needs only a few small fixes (the XSLT is incomplete). I will
commit to updating it by the end of August.

That's great news! Please send any implementation feedback to this list.

+1 :-)

For the IQ-based storage, some server-side changes would be needed.
However, as I understand it many server implementations don't use
vcard-temp as the native data storage format anyway (or, if they did,
they could run vcard-temp data through a corrected and complete XSLT to
serve up vCard4 data). Maybe I need to work on this for Prosody... ;-)
