We (UK IR) are conducting a thorough review of identification data
(including name and address) across all our services currently. CIQ
will be examined during that review, along with UK-specific standards
such as BS7666 for UK addresses.

I don't want to pre-empt the review, but I would say that the highly
structured form of names and addresses in CIQ may be overkill for
many uses - without some sort of gazetteer support at the point of
input and sophisticated address matching functionality internally it
is probably asking a bit much of most users to enter highly structured
address data and expect them to get it anything like correct or consistent.
However, there are some uses which benefit from such structure - so there
is a trade-off between usefulness and practicality.
