[Talk-us] Response from TIGER about "driveways

There are jurisdictions where named driveways are required if the house is
out of sight of the street.

 E.g. Cumberland Co. Maine, the newishcountywide E911 dispatch requires
street names be unique across county and that houses not within sight of
the road have a named PVT WAY that becomes their official address for E911.
(Unclear how postoffice andUPS feel about that.)
Requiring a clear number sign at the street might have been sufficient but
they've chosen to mandate identical PVT WAY signage instead.

( looks like none of those have made it into  OSM yet.)
