For me, it was also obvious that the address is its own feature and
not an attribute to e,g, a shop. Shops can change quickly. Addresses
are more stable. You may also have shops in ground floor and private
flats/appartments in upper floors. I don't see why the building
address for those individuals should be identified by the shop
attributes in ground floor. I don't think we need a relation if the
link is defined spatially by the building area. Of course, they are
simple cases where the building is one single address for only one
single building (a shop or a residence building) in which case we can
merge all attributes into a single node or closed way.
