We're back at my original point (sort of).  Wouldn't this be somewhat 
more semantically relevant?

<address id="creator role="creator_address">
         <p about="#creator" property="author">John Foliot</p>
         <p about="#creator" property="company">WATS.ca</p>
         <p about="#creator" property="city_state">Ottawa, ON</p>
         <p about="#creator" property="country">Canada</p>
         <p about="#creator" property="email">foliot@wats.ca</p>
         <p about="#creator" property="website">http://www.wats.ca</p>

or even

<address id="creator role="creator_address">
         <l about="#creator" property="author">John Foliot</l>
         <l about="#creator" property="company">WATS.ca</l>
         <l about="#creator" property="city_state">Ottawa, ON</l>
         <l about="#creator" property="country">Canada</l>
         <l about="#creator" property="email">foliot@wats.ca</l>
         <l about="#creator" property="website">http://www.wats.ca</l>

Span is meant as a generic containing element, is it not?  As a result, 
I think we can find a better solution than span here.
