[Tagging] RFC 2 - addr:interval

Changing semantics for an existing widely unstructured tag 
(addr:housenumber) is a really bad idea (not to mention one of the most 
used ones). It really doesn't matter if you are using | - or any other 
character for the additional information it just isn't going to end 
well. In this case it is even more absurd because in practical terms 
(OSMOSE, OSMI etc) even the simple list form of addr:housenumber is 
disputed (with , or ; as delimiter).

To lighten things up though
