The FAQ states "As such all addr:* tags (except addr:street) are ignored" which appears not to be true, addr:housenumber is searchable so it must be indexed. If both addr:street and addr:housenumber are parsed and indexed then why not addr:postcode? The performance impact of reading on more attribute when you're already inspecting the building objects should be negligible. Postcodes in the UK aren't given at a street level, two different sides of the same section of street can have different codes --GBee 20:42, 29 April 2011 (BST)

It's also implied that postal_code will be inherited from the street but this doesn't appear to be true either, if I search by postcode only FreeThePostcode results are returned.--GBee 10:25, 30 April 2011 (BST)

addr:* tags on buildings

AFAIK Nominatim DOES index addr:* tags on building, e.g. houseumbers. Can we delete that chapter?--Geogast (talk) 10:28, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
