1. I think there is some poor wording here: "Typically, the address
element would be included with other information in a footer element."
The footer element explicitly states it cannot include sections, i.e.
footer cannot contain address. Maybe it should be allowed to? Search
for "<address>" and you will find an example that has <footer> and
<address> as siblings rather than nested.

2. Would anyone else like the content model of address broadened? I
would like to be able to structure contact details using lists and
tables (when appropriate) and to do this within address tags. The
"paragraph" model is restrictive and I don't understand the reasons
for the restriction.

3. grammar... in the note "a aside" should be "an aside"

4. could the examples use lowercase tagnames to comply with xhtml (and
html) serialisaton?
