Maybe i can clear-up abit of confusion,

There is an element in HTML called "ADDRESS"[1] it is confusing to
what that actually means.

According to the W3C it is:
The ADDRESS element may be used by authors to supply contact
information for a document or a major part of a document such as a
form. This element often appears at the beginning or end of a

So when we use that in conjunction with hResume, it is the contact
information for the person whom the resume represents. So when we
mention ADDRESS+hCard we are intending

<address class="vcard">
<!-- the rest of your hcard here -->

The semantics Address does not mean class="adr", it means contact info.

I hope this helps clear-up a few things, the hCard FAQ[2] has abit
more information about <address>, we should start an FAQ page[3] for
hResume, any takers?
