Also you mentioned in the other thread that Amit has told you that Waze is using the WME address information if Google doesn't return a result. If we are sure that is the case, I think I'd like to make the following change:
The Waze map editor currently allows for the limited placement and adjustment of addresses on streets, and while it is a good idea to update this address information for accuracy, it is not currently being used by Waze for navigation.

The information that Amit gave me regarding the "Anderson Ferry" result was: "When you search '2001 Anderson Ferry', Google does not return a relevant result, and the '2001 Anderson Ferry Rd, Cincinnati, OH' result you see is from Waze's DB. If it's incorrect, it's because our data is inaccurate."
I'm not sure what data is in the Waze internal database. Its not just the street names and house numbers we input. When I asked if the Waze internal database includes the house numbers from WME, Amit's response was that the database includes "the house numbers, streets, landmarks, and data from our advertisers."
