Subject: DOCBOOK: Names and addresses

I have a long standing action item to revisit name and address markup.
The most often reported problem with the current markup is that there's
no way to associate an email address with a person independent of their
organizational affiliation.

No obvious right answer is occurring to me, so I thought I'd post my
thoughts and see what everyone else thinks. Comments, please.

Our current tags are

  author ::=

  affiliation ::=

I think we can break "personname" out of this:

  personname ::=

Then authors (editors, etc) might have this content model:

  author ::=
  ((personname, personblurb, affiliation+, email+, address+))

Where personblurb replaces authorblurb.

                                        Be seeing you,
