See my previous messages for my opinions on addresses. We don't need those 
relations if we set each address on the the containing building/parcel/floor.

A relation could be used to define which entrances connect to which POIs 
(shops etc.) in the building. But this is not in spirit of current indoor 
mapping developments. You'd rather use highway=corridor etc. to connect 
objects. -> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Indoor_mapping.
