I don't get your point here. Either someone wanted a package delivered 
to his residence. In that case they gave the wrong address information 
to the delivery guys. Should have given them a street/number or whatever 
is needed in your area to find the place. Or they wanted to have the 
package delivered to their PO Box, then the address information needs to 
be tagged to the post office where the PO Box is located and they need 
to chose a delivery company able to deliver to PO boxes.

(sorry for reordering)

I personally cannot really see a usecase. But as long as we tag phone 
numbers, websites, fax numbers etc. I cannot see why we should 
discourage it, either.
