Hi Richard,

The Address interface attributes in the editor's draft of v2 [1] are 
based on a proposed mapping of RFC4119 fields, where some of the 4119 
fields are combined into the additionalInformation attribute. [2] At the 
recent f2f meeting we revisited this discussion and concluded that we'd 
like to have some input from you on this. You can find the relevant 
meeting minutes here:

First of all, it seems that RFC5139 is the one we should be looking at, 
and not 4119. Is that correct?

The current proposal is to expose the "raw" RFC5139/4119 civic address 
data in the additionalInformation attribute as a string containing a 
JSON object.
What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Lars Erik
