mailto URI Scheme as author in RSS

There's an interesting discussion on the RSS Board public mailing list about what is a valid email address for the author, webMaster and managingEditor RSS elements. It's been suggested that mailto URIs (ex. mailto:randy@kbcafe.com) are valid. I immediately thought otherwise, but re-reading the RSS spec, I think this might actually be valid.
