Yes, please. We would like the OSAK nodes to be updated by a bot in  
the future, and moving them/changing their content will only disturb  
or complicate that process. If you remove one, it will likely be  
recreated by the bot when comes along to that street anyway.

You could duplicate the OSAK information for a building that only  
contains a single address, and you could create a relation for  
buildings with more then one address.  But frankly, I don't see the  
point. The address nodes work fine with routing algorithms, and what  
else do you need?

On a similar note, I considered assempling streets and address nodes  
in a associatedStreet relation, on a systematic level it seems  
logical, but again, I fail to see what it should be used for. A lot of  
added data and complexity (that needs maintenance) with any real

That is exactly what we want, AFAIAC :-)
