What about approximate coordinates? - eg for something near a known city -
(still useful information but obviously not to be used for looking up street

Still looking for good ways to relate city/place names to locations that do
not require external geocoding services which are unreliable with freeform
user-entered addresses.

I remember some discussion a while back about "fuzzy" locations .. but I
can't remember if anything was worked out.
