A skill using the Device Address API is generally used to to provide a better customer experience and you must call this each time a request needs this each time, so generally this is more geared towards custom skills where you can have specific intents to use this information. I don't believe smart home skills or video skills can take advantage of this, as you generally need a permissions card to retrieve this information.
