You wanna differ between streets and territories in the addr: tags. But how should territories be tagged and known as territories? --Hno 16:45, 7 April 2012 (BST)

Sometimes, it it place=village (or even place=town). Sometimes, it is place=suburb. Sometimes, it is place=island. But in some cases, there is no any polygonal object with such name. We can mark such territories, for example, with place=territory at node, located near the building, which have something in addr:territory. Dinamik 20:06, 8 April 2012 (BST)


To describe quarter on the cemetery I would also use addr:place=Quarter LXIC/North side and addr:row=5 --Władysław Komorek 06:40, 2 October 2012 (BST)


This tag would also be a good solution for duplicated street names we encounter in France whenever towns merged together. For example if two towns have a street called "Main Street", we need to put the information about the previous town's name - which is now just a place - somewhere in the address to make the distinction between the two streets. --PiRK (talk) 11:36, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

This may be wrong usage. It's not missing street name but missing place name though i doubt the place doesn't exists anymore but is probably lost administration authority only. I misunderstood, anyway this could disagree with the purpose of this tag to also remove ambiguity when there isn't an addr:street tag or there is no highway with the same name. Better to use addr:hamlet for distinction? --Redrat 12:00, 23 Jul 2016 (UTC)
