> My general practice is to try to make imports like normal mapping. For the cases you've shown so far this would be addresses on the house.
> You haven't shown any rural cases so far, but what you're doing can actually make it worse. The common rural case is a lot where the building is some distance from the road. With all geocoding software I've seen, it'll return an area with what you're proposing doing. This could put you anywhere on the lot boundary. The entrance=yes node won't be used for routing. If you have the address on the building, it will put you at the closest mapped road to the building. This may not be where you want to get routed, but the solution is to map long rural driveways. If you do what you're proposing with the import then mapping the driveways won't help this problem.
> The issue of rural addresses and emergency routing has been considered by Richard Welty for rural New York state. This is also essentially the same as the choice between representing address points at building entrances, lot centroids or the road-driveway junction.

So, would be a better option to set all the address info not in the
parcel area, but in the entrance node?
