You can do something like:

<section name="Contacts">
<contact fullname="Sam Whatever" ...>
</contact>
<t>Sam wrote <xref. .../>.</t>
</section>

The style guide does not mention a specific format for contact or
acknowledgements. Thus it's up to you. <contact> allows you to insert
information to be rendered the same way as for <author>; that's all.
