 I would like to suggest renaming the "address" tag to "contact" to keep in more in line with its definition.   

To me, the word "address" implies either a mailing address or an e-mail address. Even though the example given only uses the e-mail address, the definition of the element clearly says "contact info" which often includes: Name, Mailing address, Phone number, Screen Name.

How low will we go? Check out Yahoo! Messenger’s low  PC-to-Phone call rates.
