Yes, that's true, but I think it's become generally accepted to associate 
a callsign with a person.  Many times I've asked someone at a hamfest 
"Have you seen (callsign)?" and was told "(Callsign) is over there" or 
something similar.

99% of the time my callsign is being used at the same location where I am. 
I do a lot of portable VHF-UHF-microwave work. There have been a few times 
in a multi-op using my call when I wasn't present the whole time.
