Nominatim - Addresses in Venice, Italy should use neighbourhood instead of street

like in the "IT" test case (

Addresses in Venice (island) that have "addr:neighbourhood" or are in a "place:neighbourhood" should use that instead of "street" i.e.

"521, Cannaregio, Venice" and not "521, Calle del Solfarin, Venice" because street numbers are associated to major neighbourhood called "Sestiere" and are incremental, as one can easily see from the map. Other addresses in Venice (mainland) still use the italian standard and are correct, i.e. "30, Via San Maurizio, Favaro Veneto, Venezia, VE, Veneto, 30173, Italia"

Translations : 1)Building -> Civico "Casa 30, ... , ..." should be "Numero Civico 30, ..." or better "Civico 30, ..." 2)Neighbourhood -> "Sestiere" in Venice "Quartiere Cannaregio, Venezia, VE, Veneto, 30135, Italia" should be "Sestiere Cannaregio, ..."

Please use addr:place=<name of neighbourhood> instead of addr:neighbourhood and Nominatim will use the correct assignment.

I've made the change for the "521, Cannaregio, Venice" ( and it looks good now:
