In a city like Basel, all addresses consistently have an street name and 
a house number (and there is a consistent list of all of them).
IMHO it does not make sense to tag them differently depending on what 
feature they reference (the reference is even just by name, not even by 
ID, so there might be even multiple features named like that).

Well, maybe I should just augment the squares with pedestrian streets, 
and give the street name also to the footpath in that park, that would 
solve the problems as well.
