Which is not qiute as uncommon as it seems. Mostly, when real people who  
work in those organisations (companies, schools, and administrations are  
collectively responsible for a lot of employment in France) have to give a  
postal address - e.g. to buy physical things, or get real papers delivered  
to them.

Yeah, when I had to use it (about every second day for a few years) I just  
added it to the city name.
