[Tagging] housenumber on node and area

Hi,

We know that addr:housenumber
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:addr>=* can be tagged on nodes
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Addresses#How_to_map_addresses> and
that it's very convenient.
A problem in tagging the number on a node *instead* of on an area is
that someone making a nice copy (& paste) like below (partim) of the
nice information found in the left pane of OSM.org will inadvertently
miss the number.
Does anyone have an objection against the same number being *also* on
the node?
That is the same number both on a node (once) and on the way/relation
*that this node belongs to* (once)?
(we already have the other address information routinely duplicated and
even triplicated (associatedAddress) for the sake of consumers finding
it, so why not the address?)

Cheers

André.
