Is this supposed to be rural areas only or as the post above says any location is US with different mailing address than the Waze CDP?

I was just trying to point out that the guidance put out has wording which implies change all areas in US to have postal address in the alt name. I would just word it differently so only in rural areas where needed and the HN or RPP does not work otherwise.
Basically just a small clarification so new editor(s) don't come across it and do a lot of work that really does not change the Routing or what app users see.
Like I said in other posts I support the change but would like the guidance to be a little more specific for when to implement.

I think the core message should be a section under here on the USA Road Names Page .
I would make a few tweaks though, having the whole discussion (and Q&A) in the page is a deviation from the typical 'user manual' style of our wiki pages. I want to separate the main content for inclusion in the city naming page, and then leave the rest as a subpage which can be linked to as "more details".
The text of the guideline currently is:On segments which have "No City" set, an alternate segment is to have the city designated by the U.S. Postal Service
I think it would be better written as:On segments which have the "None" checkbox marked for the primary city name, the city name designated by the U.S. Postal Service should be set as an alternate city name for that segment.
