Hi,

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-metaAttributes.html#s_metaAttributesmodule

The element address is here to define the contact and author of the page. This element has been misunderstood for a very long time. I would suppress it altogether and use the appropriate constructs that gives RDFa and/or equivalent with role attribute.
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-structural.html#sec_8.1.

*Rename it contact.*

<p property="contact">Hello. 
	This is <span property="foaf:name">Jo Lambda</span>'s home page. <a
   rel="foaf:mbox" href="mailto:jo.lambda@example.org">email me</a> or call
  <span property="foaf:phone">+1 777 888 9999</span>.</p>

Once again it will give more flexibility to authors and will remove the block/inline constraint.

It could be also the opportunity to define a VCARD role/property module, which could be used by the authors.

<p property="contact vcard">Hello. 
	This is <span property="foaf:name">Jo Lambda</span>'s home page. <a
   rel="foaf:mbox" href="mailto:jo.lambda@example.org">email me</a> or call
  <span property="foaf:phone">+1 777 888 9999</span>.</p>

or illustrating the XHTML 2.0 specification

	<p href="mailto:webmaster@example.net" 
		property="contact">Webmaster</p>
