The HTML 4.01 Specification doesn't say that (though it's not very  
explicit either)

[[[
The ADDRESS element may be used by authors to supply contact  
information for a document or a major part of a document such as a  
form. This element often appears at the beginning or end of a document.

For example, a page at the W3C Web site related to HTML might include  
the following contact information:

<ADDRESS>
<A href="../People/Raggett/">Dave Raggett</A>,
<A href="../People/Arnaud/">Arnaud Le Hors</A>,
contact persons for the <A href="Activity">W3C HTML Activity</A><BR>
$Date: 1999/12/24 23:37:50 $
</ADDRESS>
]]]
