           Summary: modify contentinfo mapping and conformance
           Product: HTML WG

currently the HTML5 address  element    is mapped onto the ARIA contentinfo 
role.
[http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/embedded-content-0.html#annotations-for-assistive-technology-products-aria]

This is incorrect. Although it may be appropriate for a containing element that
is role=contentinfo to include an address element along with other content,
there is not a one to one mapping. a closer approximation for the contentinfo
role would be to the footer element , as specified in the spec.


current public wai-aria working draft states:

Within any document  or application, the author SHOULD mark no more than one
element with the contentinfo role. 
[http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/roles#contentinfo]

requested modifications to HTML5:

remove address to contentinfo mapping.

add contentinfo conformance statement in the appropriate section of the spec
[http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/embedded-content-0.html#annotations-for-assistive-technology-products-aria].
