I think this goes beyond MyProfile. OpenSocial is more about
relationships between containers that provide a notion of identity. The
system was developed for MySpace/Facebook style relationships but it
could have major implications for exchanging corporate role information
between companies.

API point of view. It might be useful to have insertion points for
micro-portlets in any screen in the system.
