But aren't we talking about FLOW3 here?
The subject suggests this.

If we talk about TYPO3v5 here, then please ignore the rest below.

Too bad, exactly the Party archetype is the one that actually should be 
part of any framework. Because Party is a generic type useful to model 
any relationship between objects and is also a domain- and 
business-independent type.
Address isn't.

But does that actually answer my little question about how this 
implementation might look like?

The examples of "basic" address types I know include almost no 
properties and behaviour and basically just marker interfaces.

There's also the still open question: Where you draw the boundary when 
implementing such stuff? Will there be basic implementations of Zipcode, 
Albums, Covers, HouseholdItems, Animals, Cars ..., too?

So my basic question is:
Why would you want to implement business-dependant and non-generic 
(implementable only by specific applications) types into a framework?
