Isn't there already a convention, indeed a W3C standard, for marking  
up contact details for the page author? The <address> element.

However, I can certainly see the benefit of adding id attributes in

Could there even be a case for defining specific id values as having  
specific meaning within the spec itself, if a convention did arise?
