I made already some time ago the proposal:

1. Split a streetname into it's single words
2. Remove all common names for that country, like "Street", "way", "via", ...
3. Add the remaining words to the index for that street.

With mkgmap:country we should be able to decide on 2, which list
of words should be ignored for this country in the index.
