no, you seem to extrapolate from your experience to different situations in
other countries and fail. In Italy you'll get a housenumber for every
building access, it is really common to see a store with several doors
leading to the street and every door has it's own housenumber. These
numbers are not valid for the whole building, but only for the area you can
access through them. A node inside the building contour cannot tell you the
actual extension of the housenumber. I have also seen cases where
semi-underground stores (i.e. you'll take a dedicated stair from the street
level to enter) have gotten their own housenumbers, different from the rest
of the building.

You shouldn't split the "building" if it's one building, but you could
split it into building parts (still remains one building), but you won't
get along with this approach if you continued tagging addresses on nodes,
you will have to tag them on areas to define the scope.
