This is a stretch, but you could wrap each row in a <tbody> tag and give 
_that_ a class of "hcard", then your <tr> could have a class of "adr." 
It's hack-ish and adds a lot to the table, but is still valid and could 
solve the problem.

Quick and dirty example:

    <tbody class="hcard">
       <tr class="adr">
          <td class="fn">Jason Garber</td>
          <td class="locality">Vienna</td>
          <td class="region">VA</td>
    <tbody class="hcard">
       <tr class="adr">
          <td class="fn">Andy Mabbett</td>
          <td class="locality">Sometown</td>
          <td class="region">Somewhere</td>

Hopefully that doesn't get mungled format-wise, but could this maybe be 
a solution?
