currently the HTML5 address  element    is mapped onto the ARIA contentinfo 

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. 

requested modifications to HTML5:

remove address to contentinfo mapping.

add contentinfo conformance statement in the appropriate section of the spec
