An empty <atom:author> could be provided by the algorithm, though  
this by itself is not useful. <link rel="author" could be used to add  
an <atom:url> or <atom:email> to the <atom:author>.

That said, the weak semantics of rel="author" become a slight problem  
here. If there are multiple rel="author" links, does that indicate  
multiple authors, or multiple links for the same author, or even  
several authors each with several links?
