Hi Angus, 

In the hResume draft, I belive the intent of "contact info. required.
<address> + hCard" is to specify that using hCard for contact info is
required. Ryan can confirm this, but AFAIK, you do not have to use the
<address> element for marking up the adr microformat in your hCard in
hResume. What matters is the class of "adr", not the element you choose. See
the sample in the adr specification: http://microformats.org/wiki/adr.

FWIW, this is how I've marked up my hCard in my hResume at

<div class="vcard">
  <h1 class="fn n" id="name"><a class="url" href="http://steve.ganz.name/"
rel="me"><span class="given-name">Steve</span> <span
  <address class="adr">
  	<span class="street-address">1409 La Terrace Circle</span> <span
class="locality">San Jose</span>, <abbr class="region"
title="California">CA</abbr> <span class="postal-code">95123</span>
  <div class="tel"><abbr class="type" title="cell">Mobile:</abbr> <abbr
class="value" title="+14082308134">408-230-8134</abbr></div>
  <div class="email"><abbr class="type" title="email">Email:</abbr> <a
href="mailto:steve at ganz.name" class="value">steve at ganz.name</a></div>
