I have noticed a need for markup to represent personal names and 
postal addresses.  Any markup scheme for either should be well 
internationalized.  With that in mind, I have started formulating schemes 
for names and addresses.  My question at this point is whether the 
World Wide Web Consortium has an interest in these projects.  While 
not fundamental to Web architecture, both personal names and postal 
addresses are or will be in use throughout many documents of many 
document types.  It would be advantageous to avoid duplicated efforts in 
this area.

So, again, the question: is W3C interested in developing markup for 
personal names and for postal addresses?
