Seems a useful qualifier tag where address information is only partially known to the mapper. For clarification, can it be assumed that if addr:housenumber is not assigned to the formal/official address but addr:housename is (as is the case with a lot of rural dwellings, especially isolated dwellings, in the UK) then nohousenumber= is unnecessary if addr:housename is specified in the address tagging? Equally, is there scope for a nohousename= formal tag also? --John Grubb (talk) 21:29, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Whether or not the nohousenumber tag makes sense for you will depend on the local situation (are people expecting a housenumber when there is already a housename, etc). It’s hard to imagine a nohousename tag for me, as housenames unlike housenumbers are far from common, and their absence is what you would expect.—Dieterdreist (talk) 23:16, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
