I think that if anyone is rendering this data somewhere for someone to
read, it's going to lead to a bad rendering with duplicated data. So
it's a bad idea.

As someone else noted, the BRs define a bunch of address fields, which
implies to me that each contains only the data that it names, and other
data goes in the other appropriately-named fields. So yes.
