Yeah, that's what I'm looking for. Thanks.

humans.txt attributes everyone to everything. That's not really going to
allow an automated tool to extract the correct contact details for a
page. For that, something else is needed; either some sort of reference
in the source page, or a default human.

A default human would be good enough for domains where everything should
be attributed to one human which seems to be the norm around here.

The default human could simply be the first listed in humans.txt.
