This one still throws me...the maps are full of "S Oak St" and the like, they are everywhere I look. I am gathering this is now considered OK, but even if it isn't, the horse appears to have left the barn in a big way.
I don't agree with "no abbreviated prefixes." They work just fine and the map, literally, in most every city, has either N, S, E, W or NW, NE, SE, SW as prefixes.
