[Tagging] reference_point and landmark for addresses

Would not the problem with describing the position on the object be
that you could still not find the reference object and thus it would
be completely useless?
If you have a location description referenced from "big tree" you need
to find the big tree.
There are multiple ways to get to the location from the reference
point - one address can be north from big tree and south from small
tree at the same time.
We are used to take addresses as absolute positions, but this does not
seem to be the case. You have absolute positions of reference points
(should be in the map) and then use relative directions to get to the
location - this is not an address and should not be tagged as one.
