Thinking about it, do we need this at all?
Surely if you wish to dictate the side of the street in a format
suitable for an end client to quickly interpret, then simply
sufficiently accurate lat/long would do the job?

It seems this makes the job of the person making the POI a little
easier, but leaves open a much bigger gap for the client-software end
to forfill. (having to interpret "LEFT" and figure out which direction
down the street left is, and the width of the street, in order to work
out where in the map it should be put). Isnt it better POIs have thiss
worked out when they are created?

Above and Below could be just altitude based? (or at least,
ground-level relative co-ordinates?)
