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
<https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadastre#Histoire_du_cadastre>, which
identifies any piece of land in the country.
Admittedly it is not used to deliver the mail, but do define land ownership.
