I worked this summer on an addressing project - all the addresses were 
points. In OSM I've seen discussion on relating the address to a 
structure or putting an address on a structure - I would rather keep it 
as a point within the structure (and not relating it to the building) - 
but that's just me. I believe you are just keeping the address as a 
point and not relating it to a structure (I've been trying to keep up 
with your import as a matter of interest).

Good luck on getting this done by the way.
