Hi Adriano,

Like for other Subject attributes, primary source of "address" is the 
official legal entity registry where content of the address is country 
specific. Just curious, why are we creating new problems (see "state", 
"locality" (that in some jurisdictions have absolutely no meaning) 
related discussions)? Our vote for this ballot will be No.
