There's actually more than a few bugs with those sectors because of
the number of partial postcodes. They mostly just make a mess at the
moment if you turn them on. I am planning on improving the algorithm
at some point so I might turn them on then.
They'd probably currently work for the IoM and NPE, but London on OSM
would be a disaster thanks to all the street sign partial postcodes
that have been entered.
