Yeah - that's pretty much it.  You'd only expect to find one <address>
on a page, of the author - so to discourage the use for general
listings of address the <div> was used on the generator instead (I'm
assuming, at least).

As with the specs.. divs and spans are used liberally mostly as
examples of where to put the class names and what should be nested
within what.  You should still use the correct semantic tags as are
suitable to what you're marking up, just as you would without
