Hello!

We cannot determine by 100% the impact of such changes, but already have serious issues list:

- data duplication,
- different partner ids for data (not related to invoices only),
- partner_id selection by function (code),
- important community modules relying on old schema,
- reporting related problems (group by partner)
- not tested whole workflow
- undiscovered related bugs

My proposal is:

1. Revert back address model as it was on 6.1.
2. Introduce some base_contact (or whatever proper name) module which installs all necessary interface and view changes while collecting them from user wizard right after installation - e.g. user choose something like "Simplified" or "Advanced" address management right after installation.

This sollution can bear much work to OpenERP SA, but they are responsible for mess they made still.
