addr-tags are used to display the address of an object. If you just want 
to complete existing objects with tags from relations, then addr:* 
should be ok. But If you want to create new objects e.g. all streets 
with addr-tags, this would make it impossible to keep them separate from 
the original objects with addresses.

I think using only existing objects, wont be useful, because there isn't 
a high density of address-objects to have enough points for linking with 

So it would be better to use relations to put tags to all streets in a 
form like

Also it would be useful to set an global default for each of these tags 
in mkgmap-call, because it could be possible, that there isn't any 
country relation in an extract.
