<address> doesn't give user agents trying to parse addresses much help,
that's for sure.

Postal addresses are quite common in HTML documents. Making them readily
parseable by user agents suggest many useful applications besides obvious
ones like passing addresses to a word processor or to a map-generating
service like MapQuest. For example, localized search engines could use
elements like <city> to find content connected to a particular region,
especially if it could be used outside of <address> blocks.
