Well, risking typos, making street names harder to change and requiring
evaluators to do proximity tests instead of following refs never seemed
a good idea to me, so I use associatedStreet relations. I still do not
see any disadvantages of associatedStreet if you ignore the
less-than-optimal editor relation support for now, thus I won't "fix" my
numbers. Obviously that makes me a member of a minority.
