The Postal Regulatory Commission is currently looking at the inherent social value of a healthy Postal Service.
One thing they are looking at is the value of an address. It seems like a simple thing, but look at how important an address is to the fabric of our society.

Even our competitors use the addresses that we maintain to deliver their parcels.
