Address parsing improvements and new accuracy type

We have introduced an additional accuracy type called "nearest_rooftop_match"

In the past, we have fallen back to a centroid of the street when a given house number could not be found.

We have however seen many cases where we are able to return a much better result by matching the location to a close neighbor house. This has prompted us to return nearest_rooftop_match as an alternative to street_center when possible.

nearest_rooftop_match is always returned with a reduced accuracy score (0.8 or less) to signify that it is less accurate than our best accuracy types.

We have also deployment numerous address parsing improvements - particularly improving accuracy in rural areas. This also includes the addition of almost 6M additional rooftop-accuracy address points.
