Indeed in the current scheme of things,  addr:reference_point=* should
be part of the node where the adress is, in the same way that the very
similar addr:postcode=* tag. I understand if Felix doesn't want to do
this since it's micromapping.

You would need to tag lots of:
addr:managua="Donde fue el pequeño árbol, un bloque de casas hacia el
Lago, y 25 pas hacia arriba"
addr:reference_point="Donde fue el pequeño árbol"
addr:managua_1="un bloque de casas hacia el Lago"
addr:managua_2="25 pas hacia arriba"

hacia el Lago=North
hacia arriba=East
hacia abajo= West
hacia el Sur=South

In the same way we tag:
addr:street=Lake Street
addr:postcode=118 52

I see why you would want to tag addr:reference_point=yes instead.
Felix do you have any examples from real life? I think you should
start collecting them, and please use Spanish since that is what the
addresses are written in...
