[whatwg] [wa1] 2.4.10. The address element

# The address element represents a paragraph of contact information for
# the section it applies to.

I think HTML5 should define a method to override those semantics. For 
example, an 'applies-to' attribute could be introduced:

   <address applies-to="document">

It could take the values:

  * document (its contents apply to the whole document)
  * parent (its contents apply to its parent element and descendents of
    its parent element)
  * section (its contents only apply to its section)

An alternate way would be to make 'applies-to' or similar attribute 
('for' could be reused) an IDREF.
