I store addresses like that

:ADDRESS: street no, postal-code city, country

That way of formatting is supported by the vCard export and should work fine 
with the Map support (the only two features really supporting Addresses 
anyway).  But it is not very flexible and there is no real way to add several 
addresses (usually space is used to separate several entries).

Overall the org-contacts format is a bit limited and not consistently 
designed.  It could use some refactoring.
