Errors that would not be commited if there wasn't duplication in the
first place ;) In general I think duplication like this is Bad, but
in this case I agree we should stick to the schema the way it was
originally defined, good or bad, and I normally only use addr:street
on the nodes.
Another argument for doing that is that the addr:interpolation way is
a temporary placeholder for all the nodes that should be there between
the two end nodes but not enough is known about them. Once their data
is known and someone is about to map them, they'll need to remove the
way and add the addr:street to all these nodes + the 2 end nodes, if
the tags weren't on them.
