While I agree that address that everyone uses is the one that should be
preferred, I do not see it as very much relevant for original question of 
this thread.

Surely such mismatches are exception and not a rule, and would be marked
with a note including picture from on-the-ground mapper for later

It seems much better option to me than NOT mapping ANY of the addresses on
the ground (or in the official database) because of fear that some extremly
small percentage of them might be less relevant for some groups of people 
(eg. locals or postman)?

Opinions above are GNU-copylefted.
