In the 4.3 b5 modules, <!ENTITY % author.element "INCLUDE"> <![%author.element;[ ((personname|(%person.ident.mix;)+), (personblurb|email|address)*)> <!--end of author.element-->]]> and <!ENTITY % person.ident.mix "honorific|firstname|surname|lineage|othername|affiliation |authorblurb|contrib %local.person.ident.mix;"> So affiliation is still allowed in author as of 4.3b5, from September 2003. Check to see where your document strays from these. I believe the docs come with a disclaimer that they're 'in progress' or the like.
