O.S. standard database for addresses

Hope this is of interest to the list; it was tucked away in a Guardian
supplement today:

Make room in your little black book...

Public toilets, church halls and pubs with rapidly changing names will
become a little easier to identify under the latest attempt to create a
standard database of addresses. The Ordnance Survey has announced plans
to add millions of new items to its database of 27m properties around
Britain to make it more useful for emergency crews and local authorities.
