I had a quick look as addr:housename around where i feel interested
and 99% are broken. Most of the time it belongs into name as its
the companys name, sometimes its abused as replacement for ref
of buildings. Sometimes its just a duplication of some other
tags content.

And most of the time you find that you'll find even more tag abuse 
and random invented tags. In my case they were mostly 8+ years old.
