<p>It seems that that the housenumber/name/street/postcode is probably "non-controversial" - but the town/locality is, because RM have a specific view on the world.</p>
<p>Has anyone looked at the use cases here? I am guessing that the main use case is for navigation - you have to go somewhere and you ask your counterpart where you have to go to. <span>What addressing information might be useful to the user? Probably not Civil Parish, for all sorts of reasons of reasons. Districts/boroughs are often too large to be useful for this purpose. Boundaries of localities (not being CPs) are AFAIK very poorly defined. So what type of information would fill the gap between street level and district level?</span></p>
<p>By the way, CRM systems allow for multiple types of address for the same "object". Postal address, PO Box address, visiting address... Which paradigm are we following?</p>

<pre>I never said they were, although I concede it could read like that.
However, some addresses do seem to get mutilated once Royal Mail get
their hands on them.
As others have pointed out, it can lead to having a hard time getting
some things delivered.</pre>

<pre>Of course, you can't. If I want the _postal_ address of somewhere, I
use the RM web site.
