The postal service there seems to support it, as their video in collaboration with Google shows. I can try getting a letter to them using their address, which is a Plus Code as well, and have them take a picture and add it here to have proof of that? Also probably a good idea to test with some people from the slums as well, to avoid bias by being a well-known organization.

The what.three.words use cases are definitely interesting, but I'm pretty sure you cannot legally adopt that in OSM because of licensing issues. Otherwise I think that when it's actively in use, it would make sense to implement it. OLC is already supported by a fair share of systems, most of them actually using OSM maps.
