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.
And if it is part of your name, that's because you've legally
changed your name and made it your, um, probably surname.
Hmm, is that <author><surname>Madonna</surname></author>,
<author><othername>Madonna</othername></author>? Or has she
not yet written her autobiography? :-)
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 "firstname.lastname@example.org"?
I suppose one compromise would be:
But it would be nice if this was easier?
Anyone got a suggestion?
