It seems that in the US cities in OSM that I've looked at, mappers have
been fairly (but not completely) consistent in using full quadrant

Quadrant addresses in Canadian cities seem to be almost perfectly
consistent in using NE, NW, …

I must admit, the US map looks very strange with the words spelled out
in full.
