I duplicate the address on the POI as then the POI is self contained. So
once the POI disappears the complete object may be deleted and not some
tags sorted.

A huge issue in workflow IMHO is that tags stay behind after some POI
disappears, or better, parts of the address get accidentally deleted
by someone editing the POIs information from an tag aggregating Object.

So i try to seperate out the individual functions of the objects. Makes
it much simpler in maintaining the data.
