Regarding address yes/no: in the UK, Post Code is nearly an address. If
you put the name and the post code on a letter it normally arrives without
Another aspect of address=yes/no: in all countries where Napoléon left his
marks, there is an address system that is older than the street+house
number system (I think) and that is the cadastre
identifies any piece of land in the country.
Admittedly it is not used to deliver the mail, but do define land ownership.
