> Just a reminder that in many countries buildings can have several addresses, each address on different streets; none of the addresses is a "primary" address, and all staircases of said building are referenced just with a letter after any of the possible street addresses. The numbers can be on a separate lamp on each wall, away from any entrances. Which means that the house numbers really have to go as separate nodes inside the building, and each entrance only has the ref=letter on them.

OK for multiple addresses and housenumbers for the same building, you
have this almost everywhere, but do you have cases where the same
appartment has multiple addresses?

As a general note I'd regard addresses on nodes preliminary, usually
it is a polygon that has an address. Whether or not the mapper can get
the information which is the polygon for a certain address is a
different issue (and here nodes are serving us sufficently well for
the moment).
