So what is the intent here, exactly?

Is the idea that we're supposed to use a paragraph for a block address?

    <p property="myns:address">
    <l>...</l>
    <l>...</l>
    </p>

I gather inline would be a span...

    <p>Contact me at <span property="myns:address">...</span>.</p>

The question then, is... if I wanted to write CSS to match all block
addresses, how do I know which properties represent addresses?  Do I
maintain a large list of all the properties which are addresses?  What
happens if another property is discovered which is an address too?  Do
I just update the CSS every time a new one is found?
