> This issue also came to my mind. addr:interpolation on a building doesn't seem appropriate. JOSM, for example, renders it as a dotted line around the edge of the building (as if that is the addr:interpolation way).  Clearly then, addr:interpolation isn't meant for buildings.

Similarly when there is just one building drawn for a whole street of terrace houses the number range will only be or odd even depending on the side of the road.
