I'm afraid none of us Drupal developers are familiar with CiviCRM. It 
is hard to make recommendations without having looked at CiviCRM ...  
The fact that user profiles don't have a "data model" is an interesting 
point.  How did the FOAF module solve this?  I'd think a data model is 
required to syndicate information between sites.  Either way, we're not 
opposed to patches that make the profile module more
