Google Authorship and Guest Blogging

Have you thought about giving guest bloggers authorship credit via Google's authorship program and setting up a Google+ account for them? I have, and about to start this for a client's blog that would have rel=author for many contributors.

Give them this in return for their contributions to your blog. it would be an extra benefit for authors that don't care about link citations in the guest blog posts. Reach out to people that don't normally do guest blogging and are thought leaders.
