I feel your pain.  But if you're going to use addr tags anyway, shouldn't
your pseudo=yes be addr:pseudo=yes?  Or maybe even addr:inclusion=pseudo?
I'd prefer this be in the addr: namespace, this way at least there's a hint
to any renderers/geocoders that there's something about this addr tag that
the renderer/geocoder doesn't understand.

Looking at your sample node (
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/587389651), it seems to be at least
approximately in line with Karlsruhe backward-compatibility-wise.
