That would require breaking a way at each junction, wouldn't it?  Some
models use that.  The raw GeoBase data is in that form iirc.

The current OSM address schema [1] allows less-accurate block-face
addressing via interpolation.  It also allows accurate address
location of differently addressed entrances to the same building,
routing to an address via footpaths, cycleways, etc.
