Gotta try out all the cool LJ toys. =) I read it this morning from lj_nifty and pne. <lj user="..."> will now automagically detect the type of user and display the LJ User entity accordingly. <lj comm="..."> works the same way for backward compatibility.

Of course, this takes away a lot of the customizability from control freaks (like me) who must have everything just so. What if I suddenly feel like representing myself with a community icon to demonstrate that I am a harmony of the many voices inside the one? What if I want to use the "syndication" icon to make a white-glove-slapping remark about someone being a loudmouth? What if that "news" icon is just so cute that I want to use it for more than just the LJ News community? =)
In those cases, I'd just use allah_sulu's ljl33t tool to create my own LJ entity.
