Yes, this was a mistake.

I think it is too late for this version. We have runtimes now at 99% and 
even 100% conformance and adding this would make most runtimes 
non-conforming. I think its more important now to push this spec to REC 
and address these kinds of cases in a future version of the spec.

I think we should definitely add this to any future versions of the 
spec. In fact, authors could actually start using multiple localized 
author elements today and have them work in the future.

If it is ok with you, we will add this to a future version of the spec?
