It seems lik a bad idea to let perfectly good assumptions (like a MP or
a house number "needs" a road name) get screwed up by unusual exception
as you have noted.

Why not, instead, just charge ahead but allow a special value of road
name ("NULL" ?) that notes that in this case it is known that a road
name does not exist? The entered value should probably be
differentiated from that which would be provided if the value of road
name were "unknown".
