That varies by city.  In Cleveland, this is true.  But in Columbus, 200
North Third Street and 200 South Third Street are two distinct addresses on
the very same Third Street.

Still, I think the Karlsruhe Schema is sufficient.  I'm willing to accept
[addr:street=N 3rd St] even as I insist that for the street itself,
[name=Third Street].
