If you have an address on an individual POI you can have numbers such
as 221b or whatever you want.

For street addresses however all you can do is say things like

   for this segment of the road the numbers on the left are the odd
   numbers between 24 and 34 and the numbers on the right are the even
   numbers between 123 and 104.

Well thats as far as I know... we may find out more as we go along.

I'd be quite happy to see code that only considered a well defined
simple subset of the possible tagging situations and made it work.
