what i'm looking at is a rural residential road where there are 
scattered homes
and the intermittant business where i've done the building outline 
instead of just
an node with an address. the address nodes work just fine, but i have no 
how to include a building polygon with an address on the way into an address
interpolation and have it work.

the answer may be that it doesn't, which would be a little 
disappointing, but also
if that's the case the wiki page on address interpolations should 
explicitly say
that this is the case
