In the past, I've used these tags to sanity-check addr:postcode tags on 
nearby POIs. I'm aware that ZIP codes are more complex than meets the 
eye [1], although the left/right modeling used in the TIGER import is at 
least consistent with ZIPs-as-routes. It was handy, but there are other 
ways to sanity-check addr:postcode tags anyhow.
