On Site Addresses - Instead of consciously asking for building, floor, unit room, seat, would it be better to provide primary and alternate unit designations much like USPS currently does? Gives users flexibility to designate any combination of units.

The road centerline layer, does not have route designations on the layer itself. Instead these are stored in a separate table. As a result, it will be difficult for users to use centerline data in a NENA format to make simple address maps with route symbols. Those route designations must first be added to the features themselves prior to map production.
