Why working/home address can't be created without account payable/receivable?

I was trying to add working address and home address for employee but it couldn't be created without adding account payable and account receivable on accounting tab of working/home address creation (why there even is accounting tab on working/home address?). Why is this information needed for working and home address?

At this moment only way to add addresses for employees without including this data was to remove accounting modules which works fine now when we aren't yet using OpenERP for accounting but won't help in future so we need to understand why this is needed.

Because OpenERP look the working/home address from the list of partner (Customer or Supplier) where those field like account receivable and payable is mandatory.. I think it's fine if these address have the account, since it will never get affected as long as the contact is never get used in the transaction. (to make sure, uncheck supplier and customer box)

Thanks for the info. I still don't really understand why addresses are handled same way as Partners because it will just confuse every one but if that is the logic we just have to remember it...

I think it would be really helpful to understand what exactly a 'Partner' is in the internal logic of OpenERP. And as we see many things can be a partner (even an address) so the obvious definition ('a person or a company your company has some king of relationship') apparently is not going far enough. ...anybody with a better insight who can help here?
