One small correction; in the report, you said:

"Some newer standards with an address component such as the widely adopted
vCard data format [3] do not even attempt to distinguish between address

This is not entirely true; although vCard doesn't *require* addresses to be
parsed to this level of detail, it does provide the mechanism to do so, in
the form of subelements for the Address element:

 Extended Address       Extadd
 Street Address         Street
 Locality               Locality
 Region                 Region
 Postal Code            Pcode
 Country                Country

See section 3.4: http://www.w3.org/TR/vcard-rdf#3
