This strikes me as being pretty workable. I'm mentally kicking the  
tyres and this seems like quite a robust solution.

I'd be interested to hear from Brian and/or Mike about how tricky  
this might be to implement.

Effectively this would be creating a whole bunch of fn shorthands.  
Right now we have:

fn org
fn nickname

With this solution we would also have:

fn post-office-box
fn extended-address
fn street-address
fn locality
fn postal-code
fn region
fn country-name
