Merge and Split: issues with XFN

Michael Angeles is in the process of redesigning his site. He is merging her portfolio site (studioid.com) with his personal (urlgreyhot.com). I have seen a lot of designers and developers doing this lately, but I have also seen a lot of designers and developers separating their consulting business sites from their personal sites. This is one of the reasons why XFN doesn't always work out right. For example, have a personal site (nickfinck.com), a project site (digital-web.com). If someone was to link to my name but using the digital-web.com URL, technically XFN could not be used as digital-web.com is not synonymous with Nick Finck. Things get even messier when sites merge and split focus.
