According to the wiki [1], adr has no required fields.  By my reading,  
John knows the content is an address; he just doesn't know what  
exactly the individual parts of the address are.  So he can properly  
use adr by labeling the content with class="adr" and avoiding further  
(likely wrong) detail.  That won't be useable in all adr tools, but it  
will still work in some.
