[uf-discuss] hAtom 0.1 question: Author

Hello hAtom wisemen,
I want to change my blog output to be hAtom compatible. It looks pretty
straightforward, but I have a question about author information.
I don't sign my name with every blog entry. I'm just me on my blog and I
don't see the point. Looking at hAtom it seems that Entry Author is
optional, but then it also says:
"if the Entry Author is missing
- find the Nearest In Parent <address> element(s) with class name author
and that is/are a valid hCard
- otherwise the entry is invalid hAtom"
The Nearest In Parent link points to a page I don't really understand
(being a non-programmer) <URL:
My blog is at <URL: http://www.solitude.dk/ >. Would I be correct in
assuming that if I change the link on my name at the top to an hCard then
the author requirement of hAtom is satisfied?
Also does this mean that if I one day choose to omit my name from my blog
front page I cannot have a valid hAtom front page? Is this intended? I'm
not sure I want to leave that top box on every page, but I would also like
my blog to be valid hAtom...
