For what it's worth answering a bit late. I am not sure I completely agree.

    I agree with you, either use

    or use

    As the reason for using addr:place is that there isn't a street to
    which the address refers, I also don't see which street should go
    into addr:street, it makes no sense.

Have a look at this place "Siesel": 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/51.22209/7.90369. The hamlet is 
called Siesel and officially all the streets there do not have a name 
(you can check on the "NRW-Atlas: ALKIS" layer  that all streets are 
just designated "Weg" i. e. "Street"). From an official address point of 
view all houses there should have addr:place=Siesel and 
addr:housenumber=nn. On the ground, tough, they have put up the usual 
German street name signs all showing "Siesel". So from an on the ground 
point of view all houses there should have addr:street=Siesel and 
addr:housenumber=nn. What to do now? I would say that in this case we 
could perfectly well have both addr:place and addr:street.

I agree this is borderline but I don't see why we should categorically 
refuse to have both tags.

Note that I just searched my mind for a case where this could happen. 
The actual tagging here is just using the addr:street.
