And why bother with house numbers anyway? Waze in the US doesn't use them and we don't get credit/points for adding them.

How do you propose it distributes the numbers, especially if the segments are different lengths, or cover different lengths of ranges?

You can because you have each segment's length. However, it is too much of a bother.

Waze does plan to use the internal data as primary soon. Just as with the recently-added ability to set city/state/country to landmarks. It's part of augmenting their internal search result capability.

It'd be nice if we could add house numbers to more than one segment of a street.

I don't really understand this statement.

I'm sure that the use, in the US, anyway, of Bing for street address resolution, as well as Bing, Google, Yelp, et. al., for POI resolution is just a temporary stopgap until until Waze's own house number and landmark databases are more complete and accurate.

It's my understanding that we already have a standing soft policy in the U.S. of not creating landmarks for every business/address/thing because of the clutter and sheer difficulty maintaining all of that. If we lose the (Bing Google Yelp etc.) resolutions, we lose the ability to search by things like business names. This is something that say, Google Maps has as a baseline feature. This strikes me as a Bad Thing?

Just a heads up that for me the INTL editor is not saving any editing at all. No errors, just no changes apply. :| time for a break
