This is reasonable, but there's a bigger point here-

The problem of "identifying authors in (X)HTML documents" is IMNSHO,  
solved with <address> + hcard. Sure, the scope of <address> is fuzzy  
and an hcard may just be the person's name. Yet, I think this is a  
case where we need to make sure to reuse stuff we already have in  
html and microformats, rather than reinventing.
