yes, either this, or I might add something like addr:housenumber=2;4;6 (or
2,4,6) to the store. I do this typically like the shop does it itself
(either one number or several). There's also the case that they say they're
at 33-39 but this actually reads as 33,35,37,39 (and not 34,36,38).

There is one 4 Main Street, and there can be several features on this
address, and if I have to map addresses as nodes (because there is no area
for them) I will have to either repeat this address on every feature or
will have to create relations between the feature and the address (object).
That's why I started to ask here.
