And then what? This information does not really help, does it? Either
SC users are trusted to decide if there is an address like other
mappers or they shouldn't be asked at all.
I'd tend to not ask them unless the country is whitelisted because
other sources are not available. I think in most countries there are
more important questions to check at locations than addresses.
