This proposal makes even more sense to me now that I've actually
read it :) (I've reading through the thread in reverse-
chronological order.) Specifically, given that "street" and
"street number" are mnemonics and not the actual field names,
forget what I said about it being little trouble to map Japanese
address components to logically-equivalent field names -- because
I think the components can just be mapped directly into those
fields without needing to think about any logical equivalence
among names.
