I agree, my previous address edits includes only housenumbers and
associated street. And then I added the admin_level polygon hoping
this can be used to support addressing.

I am not against ditching the is_in tag, I'm just thinking of ways I
can streamline my workflow.

Explicitly defining address within the POI node (via addr:*) is always
better than interpolation.

My problem with this one is whether to use addr:street or via
associatedStreet relation.
As always in OSM, there are at least 2 ways to do things. :)
