We have seen a few local address point imports in the US. I know of DC
and San Diego, there may be more. That made me want to look into other
possible import sources for addresses. I collected some findings on
the wiki here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Address_Improvement/United_States_Address_Data_Import_Sources
Feel free to add your (local) knowledge there. But let's discuss: are
address imports useful (I say yes, for geocoding and routing they're
indispensable), necessary (I say yes, potential OSM data users will
want to be able to do these things) and feasible (I say yes, if
there's local mappers to oversee it)?
