Address parsing is a big deal, hard to do, why geocoding services exist, is language, regional and cultural specific...

Let's keep our support of civil addresses simple and open ended

Interesting question. I'd vote for vcard only. It's not the easiest thing to parse, but at least developers can focus on a single format, and I don't think there's any standard address format that's easy to parse.
