I do that, too, when I do address points or building footprints. I
don't propose importing my county's address points (because of data
quality issues) or its building footprints (because of licensing
issues) so that happens manually on a catch-as-catch-can basis. If
you're proposing 'addr:street' on the way, that's fraught with another
set of issues - but I don't think that's what you're proposing.
