The foaf:Organization node is misplaced inside the foaf:Person node. It is not compliant with the FoaF or Doap specs.
This is an instance of the issue described here: http://lists.foaf-project.org/pipermail/foaf-dev/2009-January/009452.html
foaf:Organization like foaf:Group is a foaf:Agent (see http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/#term_Agent), so the issue is the same.
The recommended syntax from the DoaP project examples is to use the foaf:member property between the foaf:Organization node and the foaf:Person node.
Unfortunately, per the FoaF spec, the relation only goes in that direction (Organization->member->Person) with no convenient inverse property.
The best fix I can currently find is to use blank nodes and a separate Organization element that is not nested in the person element. Unfortunately, because the DoaP plugin isn't using native RDF tools internally, this will require a little more bookkeeping.
