200 millions addresses only in the EU ?
France has around 26 millions in the IGN database which would mean 1/8 of
all EU ?
After reading part 22 of the 2013/37/EU directive... it looks like there is
not reason to have some change for example in France on the IGN side. Given
the quality of this dataset on the available samples I've checked, it may
not be a bad news ;)
