I just took a look on my computer at this again, and it seems that the RPP section is already referenced in the HN places, or were you thinking to have a more direct reference?

The case being mentioned is actually about when the actual house access itself is located on a road other than the one it's address would be able to take you to due to the limitation of where the HN on the segment can take you. This case requires an RPP to get the user to the proper location. Otherwise they will have a rough time finding the proper access to the house because it doesn't exist on the segment that the HN is located on.

You're correct that the RPP could be used in the setting where the access is on a different segment than its address is listed.

I'd agree to that wording

I know interpolation usually comes from the Google side, but if HNs are removed, then there will be no Waze interpolation, since RPP don't interpolate. I would think HN and RPP next to each other can remain, only HN with a different stop point from the RPP should be removed. And even then, RPP are SUPPOSED to take priority over HN in searches. My point being that I wouldn't want to tell everyone to remove certain HN and then later on find out they should have been left in place.

RPP/HN merge is one of those !soon issues that I don't think we should even consider at this point. The majority of roads have normal HN (as opposed to those other issues), and while I know Google interpolation is used far more often, I think there is still a place to keep Waze interpolation functional, if that means not deleting HN unless there is a good reason to. Just my opinion.

One simple rule I usually follow is that if the RPP isn't on the same segment as the HN, I remove the HN for the same, valid reasons you mentioned, otherwise the HN can remain. This was what I meant by "HN and RPP next to each other can remain, only HN with a different stop point from the RPP should be removed", and that easy rule agrees with your examples.

Users often add RPP in order to add pictures of their house. Most other reasons for RPP are for stop point issues that HN can't solve, and in those cases, like Subs mentioned, HN should be removed.

I agree with Kartografer's updated suggestion, it covers all the different situations that may arise.
