Well, there is a lot of documentation* that the associatedStreet relation
is difficult for newbies. And what will (might?) happen is, in the words of
"It is a real possibility that someone signs up, tries to edit there, finds
it a horrible experience, quits, and writes a blog entry about how shit OSM
* https://email@example.com/msg04573.html "The
associatedStreet relation is the best solution from a database design point,
but with the current mappers (non-dba's) and the set of tools we have (both
editors and consumers), it seems more like a useless vehicle that's
difficult to explain and maintain."
is still more difficult for humans to deal with relations than street
