Thank you. That's good to know, though not unexpected.

As I took pains to indicate in my proposal (items as numbered):

   *    The spec should be updated to reflect the change you describe
        (item 3).

   *    Implied-nickname is equally affected (item 4). For example, in:

           <foo class="fn locality">Birmingham</foo>

        "Birmingham" is not a nickname.

   *    The current "Organization Contact Info" section:


        says that it us used "for a company, organization or place".
        This proposal would require that section to be changed (item 1).

   *    The existence of the aforesaid "Organization Contact Info"
        section implies that a matching "Place information" section is
        equally required, not least for consistency (item 2).
