House numbers on Google Maps

I just noticed that Google Maps is now showing house numbers in The Netherlands on the higher zoom levels (both map and hybrid views). More specifically, they appear to be the start numbers of the house number range per road segment, in both directions.

I think this is quite cool. Must be a very recent addition because I only just noticed it. The numbers have been available in the Tele Atlas/Navteq datasets for a long time though. A quick check shows they’re available for Belgium, France and Germany as well. Other countries maybe as well, but not the UK or US as far as I can tell.
