Every single country has different addressing rules, it's not like
this particular scheme is special. That's why someone came up with a
tagging scheme that can express all or most of these rules (but
certainly it can be successfully used for US addresses, there's no
need for another scheme).
If we're going to have special tagging for US then let's have it for
every country and let's split into many projects and just give up on
this whole silly idea of having a single map.
