WRT to the FGDC address data standard.

The capacity to connect related addresses (aliases, alternate names and
historic names) together is an important feature.

government formats for address data for all possible address formats used in
the United States and US territories. The USPS has already developed a new
address profile to conform to this standard (basically a extension to ISO
19106 and Publication 28). The Census has signed on as well, and the next
version of TIGER will likely implement the FGDC proposal.

probably be a serious mistake to ignore it. It actually directly addresses
(in address data content) all of the issues that are getting hashed over
here, and quite a few that have not been brought up yet (like dual and quad
number addresses).
