Alright, in Czech Republic this happens a lot more often - roughly half
of all the address points doesn't have a street name.

I don't see anything wrong with using addr:place even on the address
points that do have street name.

Let me ask you this: When a municipality ("obec") decides to officially
introduce the names for streets (yes, this happens - not often, but it's
not rare either), how should we reflect this fact in OSM data?
Obviously, we add name tags to ways and addr:streetname to address
points. Should we completely remove addr:place or move its content to
another tag? Why? The administrative entity ("část obce") still exists,
nothing about it has changed. The old address still works, it's just not
the preferred way of writing it.
