I am reminded of Cameron's Corner where a concrete pillar has been
erected with a large brass plaque on to reporting it as the junction of
3 Australian states.
In fact this is a tourist attraction and not the true survey mark. The
true survey mark was subject to vandalism/souvenir and has been hidden
to prevent further costs.
For this reason I would support not rendering benchmarks.
I would be wary of the touristy type "survey marks".
