Could you give an actual concrete example of an actual address that can't 
be mapped to the proposed 9-field idea?

I don't doubt that you are right, but the ID above doesn't seem to include 
such addresses and the structures it gives use fewer than 9 fields for the 
address, and the actual geographic addresses in that ID are similarly able 
to fit in a 9-field address structure, so I'm not really sure I understand 
the problem. An actual example would be of great help here.
