Possibly incorporate SCHEME from META?

 <PERSON SCHEME="Name">Paul Prescod</PERSON>
 <PERSON SCHEME="Email">papresco@technologist.com</PERSON>

It doesn't matter too much though. Technically PERSON is meant for 
the name, not the E-mail.

Now that I'm thinking about it, an element for proper-names and 
another for URIs, filenames, and E-mail addresses/user-names/IDs
would cover a lot. Adding optional attributes for SCHEME (E-mail, 
name, etc.) as well as a kind of 'REL' to indicate relationship to 
the document along with the usual LANG, ID, TITLE would add some 
flexibility/extensibility/etc.
