in parts, that is also my optinion. that is why i didn't call it suite
or something like that, but also because of following reasons:

1) whats behind a door or entrance can be something else than just a suite
2) plain english words are also more easily understood by non native speakers
3) it doesn't favor the british or american way of naming things

if it gets approved i would suggest to put the different notations
used in each country in the description column of the addr wiki page
(or the localized version of the wiki page).
