It should be possible to convert the OSM nodes containing the


tags  to  an  POI  using  as  name  something like
"housenumber  street  postcode  city  country"  and  building=yes  (or
something similar)?

Has someone already written an appropriate line to put in the "points"
file of the styles folder?

Or  has  someone  written  an  regular  expression  code regrouping the
different  addr:*  tags  in  an  name=*  tag  before  the  OSM data is
converted by mkgmap ?
