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  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.
