A street with 20 houses.
*The street: highway=residential and name=Big_Street
*The twenty houses have each addr:housenumber=1..20  and addr:street=Big_Street

An area with 20 houses using Big_Tree as reference point.
*The reference_point: reference_point=yes  and  name=Big_Tree
*The twenty houses are not covered by the proposal

strett. addr: then relates to that street, it soen´t tag the street itself.

If one would reuse the addr: scheme for the houses:
