I've handled child-less adr by reading the textual content of the  
element as a full unstructured address.  This isn't useful for  
conversion to vCard, but it's still useful semantics in other  
contexts.  In my case, for example, some geocoding services can take  
a full unstructured address as input, so I use it to estimate  
coordinates for addresses.  A structured adr is still better, of  
course, but not necessary for all use cases.
