How would you devise a rendering rule that makes an intelligible map with
two icons mapped on top of each other on the same spot?

If you want to calculate a route to or from an address it is preferable
that there's just one instance.

I'm not saying it has to be done at all instances, just if you really
adding some information to the map. Also you need a relation to tell what
kind of relationship there is between the address and the POI. E.g. a
restaurant might have one address at which it receives customers, an other
where it accepts deliveries and a third for staff entrance and a forth to
receive snail mail.
