I'd like to second that.

If there is a compelling reason to not tie the address to an existing
structure, then so be it - e.g. keep an address node as
building=entrance or something.

If, however, the main reason for not wanting to make the link is "trying
to make the link will show how bad the data really is, and just dumping
address points into the database is good enough for geocoding anyway so
why bother", then this is a clear argument for not importing the data at
all, and keeping in a separate database instead - one that might, like
TIGER address data, be loaded into the database user-side instead of
OSM-side.

Bye
Frederik
