Yeah, I probably have a number of admin-type decisions like that too :-)
Sometimes people just assume "that's the way things work," and you don't
get feedback about alternatives.  In fact that's often frustrating.

That's not really a great alternative, though, unless I misunderstand
you... which is likely.  Extended addresses (subaddresses, what-have-you)
are good; being able to file them the way you (as an end user) want them
filed is good; having the admin say "don't use them if you don't want
them filed the way I tell you to" is not as good.

My perspective, anyway.  OTOH I often tend to think that users want
more control than they really do.
