Both. You may have a home addresss, an office address, a contact may
spend half his time in the austin office the other half in the boston.

I envision a screen that shows the primary contact information, with a
link that shows other, extra, additional (whatever we call it).

I can click on Additional Addresses (as an example) for more info. THat
would send a post and retrieve info for display. Ajax would just do it

If done properly it can done easily. Heck there is even some CSS we

once but hide things as we see appropriate.
