i have been putting it into housenumber too, to a degree, but it's not
really natural.

and the suite model is very, very common, anytime you are looking
at a shared building, whether it's office space, industrial space, or
retail space.

my concern here is purely making sure the tag name is well chosen.
given that OSM tends to lean towards british usage, i'd like to know
what that is.
