Hi Toerless,

There's a <contact> element with the same structure as the <author> element.
From the current schema (https://svn.tools.ietf.org/svn/tools/xml2rfc/trunk/cli/xml2rfc/data/v3.rnc):

   contact =
     element contact {
       attribute xml:base { text }?,
       attribute xml:lang { text }?,
       attribute anchor { xsd:ID }?,
       attribute initials { text }?,
       attribute asciiInitials { text }?,
       attribute surname { text }?,
       attribute asciiSurname { text }?,
       attribute fullname { text }?,
       attribute asciiFullname { text }?,
       organization?,
       address?
     }

For more info:

Thanks,
Alice
