As I understand it, it is an error in OSM to have multiple nodes a
single location.

Alternatives to spacing them out that I have used are:

1) Delete them all. (Leaving problem cases for a future update).

2) Delete all but one,  Delete the linz_id from that one, and remove the
unit number from the address.   I.e. create a node with just the street
number for the apartment block.
