The reference document is hyperlinked, so what is the use case for including the author in a reference? I only see (very limited) value in stating if something is a work in progress, and the name of the organization that produced the document.

Well, I think it's a matter of good style to actually cite properly. (I 
guess some value of "properly" should be defined for W3C specs). YMMV.
