It's still true.  An address only refers to one street.  Two
addresses, on the other hand, refer to two streets.

I never said a building can't have two addresses, nor did I ever say a
business can't have two addresses.

In any case, how are you saying this would be handled by using the
associatedStreet relation?  Is the housenumber the same in both

(As an aside, I suppose an address could have two streets, in that it
could be "Corner of X and Y".  But associatedStreet wouldn't really
work for that either.
