Thats not the issue i am trying to solve. I am trying to solve the

-> I want to go to point A - How do i get there and where is my
   best point to stop with a given mode of transport e.g. Car.

If my destination point A is defined by an address or a POI or
whatever - i dont care.

And this is not solvable without mapper input as a huge area like 
an Airport can not be mapped to a single "best point" on the
routable network.

And there are tons of "corner cases" which make this impossible.
In case of my example - there is confusing from which Street
a House is reachable by Car.
