Well, I'm not sure I agree (though I feel your pain :-). The direct children of author are all parts of the author's name and an email address isn't really part of a name.
Why not considering these children author's information? If thinking this way, it would also allow including <address> tags in there. It would be _author's_ personal data. Anything related to his employees would come in the <affiliation> tags.
<digression> And if it is part of your name, that's because you've legally changed your name and made it your, um, probably surname.
I disagree. It's specified in the document:
<author> <firstname>Jorge</firstname> <surname>Godoy</surname> <address><email>god...@conectiva.com.br</email></address> </author>
<author> <firstname>Jorge</firstname> <surname>Godoy</surname> <email>god...@conectiva.com.br</email> </author>
that god...@conectiva.com.br is an e-mail address. The tags guarantee that it's an e-mail and not a name. The second alternative is only to forbid filling other address' data.
OK, someone must have done this, can anyone cite a case? Or do governments not consider "@" a letter in any language and hence would refuse my attempt to legally become "nd...@nwalsh.com"? </digression>
I don't see why bothering with this. Don't articles come with these data? Or do government allows e-mail addresses in companies names? If it does allow that, why would it forbid using e-mail in people name?
I suppose one compromise would be:
<author> <firstname>Norman</firstname> <surname>Walsh</surname> <affiliation role="self"> <address><email>nd...@nwalsh.com</email></address> </affiliation> <affiliation role="employer"> <orgname>Arbortext, Inc.</orgname> <address><email>nwa...@arbortext.com</email></address> </affiliation> </author>
But it would be nice if this was easier?
Sure it would be nicer! The easier to use the more the users will use it.
Anyone got a suggestion?
The two I've put above only.
