I don't get it. Given that the IETF has never verified anything about RFC authors other than their e-mail addresses,
what difference does it make if they provide a street address? What if I just made one up? Or in my case, since I live
in a small town, I could provide an address what has everything but the town wrong and I'd get any mail sent to me anyway.
