Then why don't you use "place=locality, name=45-29" if that's all you want.

Yes, use the same scheme that everyone else uses as well ;-) your scheme 
makes it really hard for a geocoder to find a house number. It is a nice 
addition for people looking at the map, but you are misusing an existing 
tag just to make something render, and that's not good.
