Proposal

Mapping Ordnance Survey benchmarks (in Ireland) chiselled into stone from the 1840s onwards. There are still many around in urban areas, people referring to them as "crowsfeet" or "sappers' marks".

Rationale

Instead of using benchmark:yes for survey points, the more logical use would be to use survey_point:benchmark as a subcategory of survey points.
