Is vCard range restriction on org:siteAddress necessary?

I'm doing a bit of grunt work on some data about companies and want to 
remodel relevant sections using the org vocabulary [1]. But... I'd 
rather not be forced to use vCard for the address info (because UK 
addresses don't fit the vCard model particularly well. You can make them 
fit, but it's a metric peg in an imperial-sized hole).

Further, does address info need to be in a separate class from the site 
info? In other words, what's the argument for /not/ doing:

[] a org:Site ;	
   ex:addressLine1 "Unit 5" ;
   ex:addressLine2 "Exemplary Industrial Estate" ;
   ex:town "Anytown" ;
   ex:county "Anycounty" ;
   ex:country "United Kingdom" ;
   os:postcode <...postcodeunit/EX11EX> ;	
   geo:lat "51.2569489" ;
   geo:long "-2.2007225" .
