Address Object?

Are there any plans to make bill-to/ship-to address a separate object. Maybe others have figured out a way to get around this.

In my case, I'm want to set-up a Parent/Child relationship between Account and Addresses.

A common scenario would be showing what assests were shipped to a given Account - there could be multiple ship-to addresses

I've seen custom objects related to the Account object ( master-detail) which were designed to hold exactly that info, so an account would have many ship-to locations, each with a dock number or account number and an address.

only problem/issue comes when you try to use these ship-to addresses in complex reporting, say with other account related lists, or in email templates where you would like to include several ship-to addresses in an outgoing email.
