The wiki actually says "typically attached to a wall, stone, or other
surface." Typically, not always. I've seen memorial plaques that are about
30 degrees to the horizontal.

For the example you give, calling it a memorial seems wrong. It isn't
anything. memorial=plaque is often used with historic=memorial. The wiki
says "A feature for tagging smaller memorials usually remembering special
peoples lost their lives in the wars, past events or missing places."
I'd say that tourism=information + information=plaque is better. You could
go with tourism=information + information=board + board_type=geography but
few people would expect to see a horizontal board. Since information says
user-defined values are OK then information=plaque.
If somebody can come up with a word for plaques set in the ground, then go
