Hi Mateusz,
I was seeking to document (the majority of) de facto use.  I have not checked all >3,600 current uses to see whether they are all consistent; perhaps a few are not.
I decided to use a proposal because I was also seeking to explain the rationale behind it.  (...and I had not submitted a proposal before, so it was a new challenge)
>"Relations that group buildings that share a single address." can you specifyrelation type there? 

The only live example I have found uses "relation:site".  You can follow the link in the proposal to the real-world example.  In the proposal, I say, "...the buildings could then be grouped in a site relation".
I will check the other relations that you quote, in case it could be applicable there, but I don't think it will be.

 Is it redefining tag or documenting de facto use?

Because for documenting de facto use it is also fine to simply
create new page anyway - and ask for review (though
proposal is OK).

If it is redefining tag - what is changing compared to 
the current use?

"Relations that group buildings that share a single address." can you specify
relation type there? 

It is not

With some trepidation, I have now moved the proposal to document the key:  "addr:parentstreet" to the RFC stage.

This is my first proposal, so please be understanding.
