Here is what I am saying:
1) If the directionals indicate a region of the city, the information
needs to conveyed somehow. This does not necessary mean that they need to
be part of the street name. If they are part of the street name they
should probably be displayed in an abbreviated form.
2) If the directional are more part of an address, as I outlined in my
other email, than they are probably best left off the map altogether.
But this should be evaluated on a city by city bases. Even if they are
left off the map, they are needed for forming addresses so the information
should be tagged somehow.
