May I ask you to avoid quoting that PDF? It only presents Lulu-Ann's 
personal opinion, and the argument is flawed because it completely 
ignores that software can guide you to an entrance node in a building 
outline even if the address is on the outline, rather than the entrance.

My preferred way to place addresses is:
- put them on building outlines if there is one number per building
- put them on entrances if there are separate numbers for each entrance
