Standard for postal address information

OK, I know this is crazy, but I just wanted to double-check - is there a 
standard, note, or some such out there that covers the storage of postal address 
information for int'l products.  One that specifies what fields you might have 
in a database, not one that talks about formatting for display.

I found references to S42-2 from, though I can't find how to 
get this publication.  I also found this site:

which mentions "ISO International Standard 11180, "Postal Addressing" (1993) 
(withdrawn 15 Jan 2004)" and indeed the ISO page confirms it.

Sooooo, am I missing anything?

I have always wished that my computer would be as easy to use as my telephone. 
My wish has come true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.
