[Tagging] Street and Sub-Street in Address Tagging

I guess there's no doubt about addr:housenumber=1   and 2

For the rest, we could consider addr:place and addr:suburb, the first is
used when the numbering does not refer to a street but to a settlement,
addr:suburb is used for parts of settlements (and has no bearing on the
question to what the housenumber refers to). "Foo Road" exists in
proximity, and it seems to be used in the addr, it is tempting to add it as
addr:street, and Bar Cottages as addr:suburb, but as the numbering suggests
this is not part of Foo Road, so a different interpretation could be:
no addr:street
addr:place=Bar Cottages, Foo Road
but it only makes sense if there is a place named Bar Cottages (i.e. the
houses were "Bar Cottages")

If you cannot make any semantic sense of the addresses, with addr:full you
can at least record the address as it is used. ;-)
