What are the use cases that require 17 elements to define an address?
The use cases that have been defined in the spec
(http://dev.w3.org/geo/api/) [which would make use of civic address
data, *'d] seem to be well serviced by the simpler format I proposed.

6.1.1 Find points of interest in the user's area*
> cafeteria inside the building

6.1.2 Annotating content with location information*
> meeting room in 3rd floor

6.1.3 Show the user's position on a map*
> is "map" always related to a flat 2D satellite view?!

6.1.4 Turn-by-turn route navigation
> in house navigation --> two stairs up, left, 3rd room to the right

6.1.5 Alerts when points of interest are in the user's vicinity
> Alice' and Bob's room nearby

6.1.6 Up-to-date local information*
> Mobile World Congress: meeting at booth xyz (contact currently
available)

6.1.7 Location-tagged status updates in social networking applications*
> away (in meeting room) / online (in office)

Just to be clear, Henning means "the elements that are in RFC 4119".
There are only 17 of these elements (not 4119), which is admittedly more
than in Alec's format, but still very manageable.
