The text components are separated by the SEMI-COLON character (ASCII
   decimal 59). Where it makes semantic sense, individual text
   components can include multiple text values (e.g., a "street"
   component with multiple lines) separated by the COMMA character
   (ASCII decimal 44).

All the elements for an ADR appear to be zero or more.

If you have multiple street-addresses on a page they will be
concatenated together with a ',' and used as a single element in the
ADR. The output will only have ONE street-address, but when they can
be broken into many class="street-address" in the html.
