"Dijkstra nodes" does not have to be "OSM nodes". They can be state-machine
states like "I'm at node 123, driving West on Main Road".

Gosmore can search for any tag value, nearest matches first. So if I want to
search for "1 Main Road, Lynnwood Park", I start by searching for Lynnwood
Park, then I search for Main Road. Then search for 1. I know it's not
perfect, but it's not useless either.

I agree. But it will be much better if someone actually downloads the
applications and see if they work on a randomly chosen location in the map,
not just in the author's neighbourhood. For example not take to long to
compute a route.
