Drupal 7 has been addressing :-P these issues with an "addressfield"

I did some more digging..
When we are on the "standard track"...
Established in 1874, the Universal Postal Union (UPU)
is a specialized agency of the United Nations , 192 member countries
UPU has developed two addressing standards: S42 and S53.
I have not looked at UPU S42 and S53 to vertify if its part of xNAL
As a side note (The long run ?):
UPU has a Universal POST*CODE® DataBase
Sad: UPU is an UN orgnaistaion, and you have to sign a
"Non-Disclosure Agreement - POST*CODE User" ....
(From "Licence Documents")
POST*CODE® DataBase "it was very expensive" - recommends GEONAMES
And the price is high.. (From "Licence Documents")
1 Basic licence WORLD (191 countries) 10 880 CHF
http://www.openstreetmap.org/ (Has all the Norwegian postcodes )
used by http://www.fiksgatami.no/ (fix my street) (www.mysociety.org/)
or the openaddresses.org intiative:
