Duplication of data, possibly?

Regarding the detection of the nearest street, the risk here is at the intersection, where the sidewalk might be attributed to the other street.

I'm trying to work out how using name=* on the sidewalks isn't the easiest, most obvious answer.

Audio routing (so you can put your phone in your pocket and listen toheadphones) and audio/braille descriptions for the disabled would bethe most obvious use cases for names. In fact, I'd imagine thedisabled are a likely important audience for OSM since Google doesn'tgo out of its way to provide non-visual interfaces to Google Maps asfar as I know.


Good point. Other than using relations, I wonder if a search for the nearest street would provide a clue to the router? Not as exact as having either a named way or a relationship.
