this implies road markers must be present, right? Isn’t this mainly about the distance from some zero point, even in the absence of road distance markers? 
It could be addr:kilometrage to refer specifically to this distance, but I agree on the other hand this would have a reference to kilometers in the tag, which isn’t universally working well on a global level
