This is absolutely not a reasonable expectation.

A few brief counterexamples would include any document listing an organization
but not any individuals as its author (plenty of those), quite a number of
novels, the "Elements of Mathematics" by Bourbaki.

The expectation is that works are identified by whoever wrote them.  No more,
no less.
