[Tagging] We should stop using hyphens to denote address ranges

So what's the consensus on an apartment building (way) that has mailboxes
for each person who has an apartment there.
I've just been tagging those as:
addr:housenumber = A1;A2;A3;A4;A5;A6;A7;A8;A9;A10;A11

(Semicolon, because that's what the wiki recommends for multiple values
