This is an important thing to map.
I have been looking at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Addresses and it
seems that the key addr: is used on each and every single address. an example,
the addr:street isn´t used on the street but on the surrounding buildings that
uses that street in their adress. with a similar approach,
addr:reference_point would be used on all houses having "the railway station"
as a reference.
My conclusion is that you should not use addr: for this tag. I suggest to use
only reference_point=yes or reference_point=address.
Maybe there are other uses for reference_points, what first comes into mind
are the survey points: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%
