That's what I propose here:
Internal grammar of tags.

That would correspond to an underlying selbri such as:
"x1 is the reference point a distance x2 from x3 where x4 occurs".

My current proposal gives the underlying selbri as:
"x1 is the distance between x2 and x3".

This does not let you use {tevu} for "yonder at...", but
"yonder at..." is simply {vubu'u}, so the additional place
is not really needed.
