Comment:
The earlier version where it said "If an address element applies to a section
of a document, then it represents contact information for that    section only"
was a better approach. I see what you're after here, but it's way too 1996. "A
web page" or "a document" in 2010 terms is very, very often a composite
content stream with numeous sources with independent attribution (contact
info).    This needs to work down to the div level. I would suggest that this
be
done with id attributes and some attribute of the address element that refers
to an id attribute (e.g. <div id="foo">...<address
scope="foo">...</address></div>  Please re-examine this with a more "Web 2.0+"
view.  - Stanton - gmail: smccandlish - please subscribe me to this bug (I'm
