Hi,

The OpenAddress project is great, but we still need addresses in OSM.
It would make sense to write OSM importing (and updating) software
that is assumes OpenAddress as an input, rather than the raw files
released by official GIS committees. By standardizing on the output of
the OpenAddress project, most of the remaining work needed for an OSM
address import is the same, therefor we have a chance of getting good
OSM import software written and a standardized processes that can be
optimized.

Thought I have never seen this idea expressed on the OSM lists, I
assume this is part of the long term vision for the OpenAddress
project. If a commercial OSM user (or the board) wants to encourage
getting addresses into OSM at a large scale, this would be the way to
go.

Jason
