Then make it a broader request for QA based tag hinting like noexit=yes
I dont care if this matches internationally. Addresses are basically
such a can of worms that one size will never fit all. And it fits
in Germany for i guess 90% of all al8/6/4

So i'd be happy to have some hierarchy of tags which are implementation
specific like


or the like.

Currently all the people doing QA do their own little QA
override/exception list maintenance which is a pain in the ass.

We share the same goal, we have the same problem and we have no
place to put this type of QA hinting/override. From OSM history
we do have tags like noexit for QA hinting. 

And i do have other issues i would like to QA hint aswell. We
do have 1% of strange constructs in the OSM Database which wont
fit into automatic checking and before we keep that beeing
red in every QA frontend and people breaking data because
some QA frontend showed it red, i'd rather do some universal
and consensual hinting of "you dont need to look at this data"
from a consistency based approach, please ignore it, or better
hint the QA to make better decisions.
