Yes, but I don't think addr:housenumber is the way to go.

I think that addr:unit was discussed for this use a couple of years ago. I don't remember the details and the limited bandwidth and tools at my disposal at the moment are keeping me from doing a search. My first reaction is that addr:unit is part of the address name space and it seems that if the rest of the name space tags are not used in this context maybe it shouldn't be either.
