Not quite! The four digit zip code only identifies a smaller area
within the five digit zip code area. You would still need a specific
address (unless your postman knows you real well).
Your second paragraph reminded me of a letter that was properly
delivered many years ago that had only a picture of a dinosaur as the
address. It was delivered to Dinah Shore.

A. Person name
Yes, there have been some "for fun" mailing done like this, and
they have been delivered. Check out the newsgroup alt.snail-mail for
the folks who try things like this.
