[uf-discuss] hAtom question

The schema section of the hAtom spec [1] says:

"author. required using hCard. [*]"

But the entry author section [2] says:

"an Entry SHOULD have at least one Entry Author element"

Should this be a MUST?

Also in a blog post [3] David Janes suggests that hAtom 0.2 may drop the
author and updated/created requirements. Any idea if/when this will happen?

I'd like to add hAtom to all our episode aggregations [4] on
bbc.co.uk/programmes and authorship and dating are tricky

Sorry if I'm being a numpty - just a bit confused
