Question of privacy with reassigned resources

If it is a business, then accurate address does not seem to me an issue, if it is a private address, I think a bit of fuzziness is helpful

As an SP in the MDU (multi dwelling unit) market we dutifully SWIP
netblocks for each apartment complex/condo/etc.  Doing such we
publically publish the physical address an IP lives (sans Apt/Unit #).

Would anyone feel this is too much information for people to know?
Should our SWIPs be more generic, local POP address or local corporate
office, just enough for rough geolocation accuracy?

I realize what ARIN prefers, this is more of an opinion gathering.
