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.

I disagree.
It's specified in the document:




that godoy@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.

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?

Sure it would be nicer! The easier to use the more the users will use

The two I've put above only.
