[uf-discuss] What to do when a microformat doesn't quite fit?

While we're rolling here, can I timidly take offense with the
<address> requirement for author optimization?

On that blog post from http://fuzzycontent.com (see nearby thread), I
concocted an example which quickly turned out to be invalid, because
of this issue.

See, I wanted to create an embedded feed, which lists current blog
project participants. This is an hAtom feed, embedded in a post, which
is part of a blog owned by multiple folk (kind of like
microformats.org blog). Address author optimization isn't the right
thing, because the hCard only indicates who authors the embedded feed,
not the blog or page.

Am I out of luck on this example?
