I think some basic stuff done with heuristics is to find primary roads for
'far away' stuff. So what I sugested was: forget the nodes at all, and
only add junction points and different street names. This could be
extended to street house numbers etc. But I don't see OSM doing this in
the near future :)

People without theorethical knowledge are the best problem solvers :) Out
of the box thinking.
