so you propose that the <address> secion of Chapter 6. Format Of Contacts
should read like:

            <type>(string, default home)</type>
            {<street>(string, default empty)</street>}
            <locality>(string, default empty)</locality>
            <region>(string, default empty)</region>
            <postal-code>(string, default empty)</postal-code>
            {<k-pobox>(string, default empty)</k-pobox>}
            <country>(string, default empty)</country>

    some postal addresses have a pobox number instead of a street address,
    So it should be one or none out of these two tags present.
    some only have the zip code which is saved in <postal-code>

I do not really understand why you would want a "k-" in front of it?
