It would be really nice if there were a feature in the WME so editors could easily populate all the nearby segments with the same properties (type of road, direction, name, etc). 8-)

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?

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.
