Footpath's name used instead of nearest street

Description

There's a named footpath between a bank and a street, and this causes Nominatim to report the footpath "Walkway" as the bank's address:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/1258483211

"Bank Santander, Walkway, City of Westminster, London, Greater London, England, SW7 2AZ, United Kingdom, European Union"

It would be nice if Nominatim could figure that out, e.g. take into account how close the path is to the street and use street's name instead?

You can tell Nominatim to which street the bank belongs by simply adding an addr:street tag, see the wiki page about addresses for more information about the tag.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
