A pure numeric (because we know the phone numbers work) grid reference relative to a suitable administrative entity.
BUT as this discussion shows, in the end you could simply number all buildings in a place and add those numbers to OSM (as the authoritative repository) and probably make everybody happier. People seem to be looking more for unique ids for their dwellings than something that is dependent on a relatively fine grained location/coordinate value, of which you may have multiple for one house. We know this works, it is still a very common system in alpine regions in Europe.
